Exemplifying the Renaissance skilled artist as a imaginative genius, Leonardo da Vinci toiled as an innovator and scientific expert. The forces of nature led him to analyze the qualities and motion of water, and due to his fascination, he methodically captured his ideas in his now celebrated notebooks. Brilliant water exhibits loaded of symbolic meaning and natural grace transformed private villa settings when early Italian water feature creators paired imagination with hydraulic and landscaping expertise. The humanist Pirro Ligorio brought the vision behind the wonders in Tivoli and was distinguished for his skill in archeology, architecture and garden design. Other water feature designers, masterminding the fantastic water marbles, water attributes and water humor for the countless mansions near Florence, were tried and tested in humanistic subjects and time-honored scientific texts.

The Source of Modern Outdoor Water Fountains

Source Modern Outdoor Water Fountains 36239113.jpg The Source of Modern Outdoor Water Fountains Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, ruled the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of ancient classic Greek texts into Latin. In order to make Rome deserving of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope decided to embellish the beauty of the city. In 1453 the Pope instigated the reconstruction of the Aqua Vergine, an ancient Roman aqueduct which had carried clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away. The historical Roman tradition of marking the entry point of an aqueduct with an imposing celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The present-day location of the Trevi Fountain was once occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and constructed by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. Changes and extensions, included in the repaired aqueduct, eventually provided the Trevi Fountain and the well-known baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona with the necessary water supply.
