Historical fountains and water features have stirred the interest of modern-day designers as well as fountain manufacturers. Therefore, in order to connect your home to earlier times, add one these in your home decor.

Wall fountains are a good alternative if your yard is small because they do not need much space in comparison to a spouting or cascading fountain. Two possibilities to pick from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which hangs on a wall. Be sure to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the bottom if you wish to add a fountain to your living area. Since the plumbing and masonry work is substantial to complete this type of job, you should hire a specialist to do it rather than try to do it alone.

The Source of Today's Outdoor Water Fountains

In order to make Rome worthy of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope decided to embellish the beauty of the city. At the behest of the Pope, the Aqua Vergine, a ruined aqueduct which had carried clean drinking water into Rome from eight miles away, was restored starting in 1453. A mostra, a monumental dedicatory fountain built by ancient Romans to mark the point of entry of an aqueduct, was a tradition which was revived by Nicholas V. The present-day site of the Trevi Fountain was formerly occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and constructed by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
