The Famous Frowning Fountain

In 1927 as part of the attempt to beautify the Eternal City, architect Pietro Lombardi designed the Fontana degli Artisti. It is situated in Via Margutta, a narrow street known for being home to many art galleries and stylish restaurants. On each side of the triangular base, Lombardi carved two masks. The frowning and happy faces represent the contrasting destinies of artists. Water flows out from the holes in the faces, creating a vision of intrigue and mystery.
