Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi – Piazza Navona, Rome

Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi is the largest fountain on Piazza Navona, in the centre or Rome, Italy. It was built in 1651 by Gianlorenzo Bernini. The four gods on the corners of the fountain represent the four major rivers of the world known at the time: the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Plate, each design carrying its own symbolism. The one shown here is the river-God Ganges.

I managed to escape from business conference in the outskirts of Rome, just in time to catch the last glimpse of light in the sky in Piazza Navona 🙂
