The Outdoor Water Fountains

The Outdoor Water Fountains The water from creeks and other sources was initially delivered to the residents of nearby communities and cities by way of water fountains, whose design was mainly practical, not artistic. Gravity was the power supply of water fountains up until the close of the nineteenth century, using the potent power of water traveling downhill from a spring or creek to force the water through spigots or other outlets.Outdoor Water Fountains 52530142.jpg The appeal and spectacle of fountains make them appropriate for historic memorials. If you saw the earliest fountains, you probably would not recognize them as fountains. Crafted for drinking water and ceremonial functions, the initial fountains were simple carved stone basins. 2000 BC is when the earliest known stone fountain basins were used. The force of gravity was the energy source that operated the oldest water fountains. Drinking water was provided by public fountains, long before fountains became ornate public statues, as attractive as they are practical. Fountains with elaborate decoration started to show up in Rome in about 6 B.C., commonly gods and wildlife, made with stone or copper-base alloy. The City of Rome had an elaborate system of aqueducts that provided the water for the numerous fountains that were located throughout the community.

Gian Bernini's Outdoor Fountains

Gian Bernini's Outdoor Fountains There are numerous famous fountains in the city center of Rome.Gian Bernini's Outdoor Fountains 791491380240763.jpg Gian Lorenzo Bernini, one of the most brilliant sculptors and artists of the 17th century planned, conceptualized and built virtually all of them. Marks of his life's work are obvious throughout the avenues of Rome simply because, in addition to his capabilities as a fountain designer, he was also a city builder. Bernini's father, a renowned Florentine sculptor, mentored his young son, and they ultimately moved to Rome, in order to fully express their art, primarily in the form of public water fountains and water features. The young Bernini earned encouragement from Popes and influential artists alike, and was an diligent worker. His sculpture was initially his claim to glory. An authority in ancient Greek engineering, he used this knowledge as a foundation and melded it flawlessly with Roman marble, most remarkably in the Vatican. Though he was influenced by many, Michelangelo had the most serious effect on him, both personally and professionally.
