The Hellenic Republic: Cultural Sculpture

The Hellenic Republic: Cultural Sculpture Most sculptors were paid by the temples to enhance the intricate pillars and archways with renderings of the gods until the period came to a close and many Greeks started to think of their religion as superstitious rather than sacred, when it became more typical for sculptors to portray everyday people as well. Sometimes, a depiction of affluent families' ancestors would be commissioned to be placed inside of huge familial burial tombs, and portraiture, which would be copied by the Romans upon their conquering of Greek civilization, also became customary. A time of artistic enhancement, the use of sculpture and other art forms transformed during the Greek Classical period, so it is inaccurate to assume that the arts served only one function. Whether to satisfy a visual yearning or to rejoice in the figures of religion, Greek sculpture was an innovative approach in the ancient world, which may be what attracts our interest today.

At What Point Did Water Features Originate?

The translation of hundreds of ancient Greek texts into Latin was commissioned by the learned Pope Nicholas V who led the Church in Rome from 1397 until 1455. Embellishing Rome and making it the worthy capital of the Christian world was at the heart of his ambitions. Starting in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent repair at the behest of the Pope. The ancient Roman tradition of building an awe-inspiring commemorative fountain at the location where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The present-day location of the Trevi Fountain was previously occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and constructed by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually allowed it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the famed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
