History and description
The fountain in the Piazza del Viminale was designed in 1929 by Publio Morbiducci. It is placed directly between the two ramps leading up to the building itself.
The fountain consists of a rectangular tub with a smaller central tub resting on a foundation. The water squirts out of two round elements.
The foundation is decorated with the three mountains that form the coat-of-arms of the rione Monti, the Capitoline Wolf and a crown the points of which end in small towers.
