    In the center of the Square is the fountain, dating from the early 18th century and supplied by a branch of the Acqua Felice, it is located near the Ercole Vincitore temple, in the square in front of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin church, that houses the Bocca della Verità. .
    Sculpted by Francesco Moratti and designed by architect Carlo Francesco Bizzaccheri at the behest of Pope Clement XI Albani, both in the depicted theme and in style it was inspired by Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Triton fountain in Piazza Barberini.

    Piazza Barberini is a large piazza situated on the Quirinal Hill. It was created in the 16th century but many of the surrounding buildings have subsequently been rebuilt. The current appellation was given in 1625 when it was named after the Palazzo Barberini, the substantial Baroque palace built in an elevated position on the south side of the piazza for the Barberini. At the centre of the piazza is the Fontana del Tritone or Triton Fountain (1642) sculpted by Bernini. In the square Barberini-Fontana di Trevi Metro A Station is also located.

    The square stands out mainly because of the triton fountain. Otherwise there isn't much and the road that leads around the square unfortunately doesn't make it that pleasant. If you come by, you can have a look at the fountain, but you don't have to make a detour as there are so many great places and fountains in Rome

    Lively square with beautiful fountains and lots of traffic. Until the 19th century, unknown dead were exhibited here for identification.
