Piazza Del Popolo

by on Apr.17, 2009, under Uncategorized

Back in Rome this past week. Didn’t see quite as much as I was hoping to but still saw many great things. Such as the statues in this plaza.

More posts soon. Tomorrow I visit the catacombs, and travel further down the Appian Way. Also hopefully I’ll finish my Respighian tour of Rome by visiting the rest of the pines and fountains.

    The # 1 thing I remember loving about my trip to europe was the puking fountains. Nimes (If I remember correctly, it could have been Nice) Had two massive marble heads across from one another, puking massive gushes of water onto a cherub in the middle of a circular pool, that emptied into a marble channel, that ran right into another massive marble head (or that’s how I remember it) anyway – It’s a shame we don’t have more visceral water features in the US.

    I know, they’re awesome, aren’t they? I saw some huge ones in the Pompeii musuem (not active, but the gaping mouths were there) so they’re at least 2000 years old. It’d be fun to replace the water with coke + mentos and see what happened. Then they’d _really_ be puking fountains…
