    Description:

    A fountain in the Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy. It was designed in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Pope Innocent X. The base of the fountain is a basin from the center of which travertine rocks rise to support four river gods and above them, a copy of an Egyptian obelisk surmounted with the Pamphili family emblem of a dove with an olive twig. Collectively, they represent four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread.

    Description:

    The fountain is probably located in the Temple of Saturn, an ancient Roman temple to the god Saturn. The ruins stand at the foot of the Capitoline Hill in Rome. The original dedication of the temple is traditionally dated to 497 BC. The temple was completely reconstructed by Munatius Plancus in 42 BC. The present ruins represent the third phase of the Temple of Saturn, which was built after a fire in 360 AD.
