PIAZZA NAVONA – BAROQUE ROME PRIVATE TOUR

Thanks to its original elongated form, Piazza Navona deserves a foremost place among Rome’s numerous historical piazzas. Built on the site of the former Domitian stadium, it traditionally accommodated the market and popular shows. During the 17th century it became the city’s salon, partly because of the presence of Palazzo Pamphilj, and it ins embellished with further monuments and buildings. These enhance the spatial homogeneity which is owed to the regularity of the architectural features packed into the onbroken ranks of walls and facades, and to the atromatic unity. A result of the urban plans for the piazza under the patronage of Innocent X Pamphilj, who was responsible for the complete IrOrganisation of the area and the demolition of some blocks, was the concave facade of Sant’Agnese.

The work of Borromini, it merges with the walls surrounding the piazza, copying the essential architectural motifs and presenting an emblematic example of dynamic integration between the building and the space in front of it, which acts as an extension CO the church and seems to disappear into it. In the layout of the piazza, a role of no lesser importance is played by the three fountains which serve to break up the huge horizontal space into four distinct areas. The focus is the symbolic and actual centre of the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers), the work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It is a spectacular allegory of the worldly prestige of the Pamphilj: an aerial .natural grotto.. The four springs of faraway rivers spout from it and it is studded with exotic plants and animals. It acts as a base for the Egyptian obelisk crowned with a dove, the symbol of the Pamphilj and the Holy Spirit.
