Bernini fontana di Piazza San Pietro - Vaticano
"Bernini fountain in Piazza San Pietro - Vatican"...
This image was created at the Vatican in the Piazza of Saint Peter of the famous Bernini fountain located in the southern area of the square. There are two fountains in St. Peter's Square: the first was created by Carlo Maderno; the other by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the Italian sculptor and architect, and a major historical figure in the world of architecture. He was the leading sculptor of his age, credited with creating the Baroque style of sculpture, and he was also the designer of the entire square of Saint Peters. Pope Alexander VII trusted Bernini to develop a structure that would adequately frame a barrier of space for visitors to collect, but also a place for them to bask in the honor and distinction of Rome as a Catholic state. Bernini placed ninety-six saintly statues over the colonnade’s balustrade, which tower majestically over the square, and are viewable in the background of the fountain.
