Description

'The two fountains of St. Peter's Square (Italian: Piazza San Pietro) were created by Carlo Maderno in 1612-1614 and Bernini 1667-1677 to ornament the square in front of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The older fountain, by Maderno, is on the north side of the square.For half a century the square was decorated with the Maderno Fountain and with the obelisk raised by Pope Sixtus V, but the southern part of the square was empty. In 1667 Pope Clement X commissioned Bernini to build a second fountain, which closely followed the design of the earlier fountain. The second fountain was completed in 1677.'
