Fontanone with ICE


Today 2 degrees centigrade (35,6 Fahrenheit) in Rome and the water inside the big fountain on the top of the hill of Gianicolo is ICE even if an impessive sun is warming the air.
The big fountaine on Gianicolo Hill is in Via Garibaldi , close to S.Pietro and Montorio sqare and it's well known with the name of "Fontanone". It is similar to the Mosè fountaine in S.Bernardo sqare but this is more elegant. It was realized between 1608 and 1612 by Giovanni Fontana with the collaboration of Flaminio Ponzio.

I was surprised by the color of the water in the fountains in Rome when I visited last year. It looks so transparent and blue... Beautiful town indeed!
