About Moro Fountain

Rome is known for it's art work which exist seamlessly with everyday life. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of Rome. Definitely there are challenges involved. On September 2011, the Moro Fountain found itself under the wrath of a man and his hammer on this dark night. This deliberate destruction caused slight damage to the statue. Fortunately, this isn't the original fountain in Piazza Navona. It is a copy which was created in 1874 during the restoration and relocation process of various great statues in the Eternal City. In 1653, the original Moro Fountain was created by the artists Bernini and Mari which is securely maintained in the Villa Borghese.

    There are three fountains in Navona Square, the most central one is the Four Rivers fountain, the north one is the Sea God fountain, and the south one is the Moorish fountain. A Moorish stands in a conch shell and wrestles with a dolphin. I don't know what the Moorish thinks. Dolphins are so slippery. Can he hold them firmly? How can you wrestle with it? The fountain was first designed by Della Porta in 1575, with dolphins and four Tritongs around it. In 1653, Bernini added a statue of the Moors on it, making the fountain more vivid and thematic.

    Rome is really a scenic spot step by step. It's dark when we get here. Italy is still bright at 8:00 p.m. Baroque Art ~Street Artists appear again. There are even Chinese compatriots in the small commodity vendors. This square can see three fountains at once. Although there is no grandeur beyond the Wishing Pool, it is much better than the fountain of the broken boat. Sculptures everywhere, squares everywhere, fountains everywhere, naked men everywhere, no problem.

    The Moorish fountain is also in front of St. Anesay's Church, just a few steps away from the Four Rivers fountain. I don't remember the original builder of the fountain, but I know that the muscular sculpture of the Moors and dolphins in the middle was made by Bernini. The fountain consists of two pools of different heights and heights. The shape of the pool is irregular figures with curves and horns. There are four Tritongs blowing conch around it. The sculpture in the middle is a Moorish made by Bernini. I don't know whether it is textile or not. I always think this African uncle's buttock is strange.

    The fountain in Navona Square was said to have only the dolphins in the middle at that time. Later, the designer added the statue of the Moors to the fountain, which was just opposite the square, and wanted to wrestle with the Moors and dolphins. It echoed the fountain where the sea god killed the giant octopus.

    The Moorish fountain is located at the southern end of Navona Square in Rome. She depicts a Moorish or African standing in a conch shell wrestling with a dolphin surrounded by four Tritongs. According to Hesiod's Spectrum, Triton and his parents live in a golden palace deep in the sea; while the hero of Argo records that he lives on the coast of Libya. When the Argo sails on the coast of Little Syrtes, the crew takes the boat to Lake Tritonnis, where the local god Triton guides them into the Mediterranean Sea. Therefore, the Moorish fountain is also called Triton fountain.

    Moorish fountains are all located at the southern end of Warnavo Square. They depict a Moorish or African dolphin wrestling in a conch fishery. The fountain is really first-class and very beautiful. The characters on the fountain have different shapes, especially the figure's body. Each muscle line is perfect. It really makes the people who love sculpture happy.

    Bernini left his mark on this city like none other, and the only reason this beautiful fountain might be overshadowed is because he constructed a much grander one at the heart of Piazza Navona. Silly goose.

    On this side of Navona Square, a Moorish stands on a conch shell, wrestling with a dolphin and others around it. It's a very distinctive place. There are many people around it. They come and go. They can have a rest and visit. It's good.

    This fountain is relatively small, just above the Volvo Square. There are three fountains on one line above the Volvo Square. The smallest one is the one. Although the smallest, there are not many people who take pictures with him, so they can take pictures with this fountain.
