Piazza Navona

Piazza Navona is one of most famous public squares of Rome.
During Roman age, in this place there was the Stadium of Domitian and the name of the square was originally in Agone (from the Latin word agones, "games") because the area was used exclusively for the athletics contests. Today the square traces the shape of the ancient stadium, and is considered one of the most spectacular and characteristic public squares of the baroque Rome.

Piazza Navona is dominated by three fountains: the Fontana del Moro, carved by Giacomo della Porta, located at the southern end of the piazza, the Fontana di Nettuno located at the northern area, and the most famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers), a work by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, in the middle of the piazza. Realized in 1651, the fountain is the extraordinary support for the roman copy of an egyptian obelisk, surrounded by four colossal men, that personify the great rivers of the four continents: the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Río de la Plata.

Among the splendid buildings and palaces that surround Piazza Navona, we can admire the concave facade of the Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, built in 1652. The square, during the Christmas period, accommodates a market that has become a tradition for the city; moreover it became place of meeting and art performances that rendered it, above all at night, one of the most vivacious and interesting points of the city.
