About this title


Following the restoration of Rome's aqueducts under the popes - cut off in the sixth century they underwent a long period of "drought" during the Middle Ages - fountains once again flourished in Rome as in ancient times when the city was without rival. This second edition with its totally renewed typography and contents aims to draw the reader's attention to the many fountains in courtyards, cloisters and gardens which, although often "minor", are all worth getting to know. The result is the most complete body of illustrations ever published on the theme.The book opens with an essay on the waters, baths and fountains of classic Rome by Emilio Rodriguez Almeida.
