Fountain #Mascherone
This #fountain is named the #Fountain of the Big Mask, for obvious reasons. It was commissioned by the #Farnese family and was sculpted by an unknown artist in 1626. The Farnese, who lived in the Palazzo #Farnese just opposite the fountain (now the #French #embassy) were known for throwing extravagant parties in the piazza in front of their palace. On these occasions the fountain would flow not with water but with wine.

TODAY WAS BURNED ALIVE
#Giordano #Bruno (1 January 1548 – 17 February 1600), was an Italian #Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist. He is remembered for his cosmological theories, which conceptually extended the then novel #Copernican model.
Beginning in 1593, Bruno was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition on charges including denial of several core #Catholic doctrines, including eternal damnation, the Trinity, the divinity of #Christ, the virginity of Mary, and transubstantiation. Bruno's pantheism was also a matter of grave concern.
The #Inquisition found him guilty, and he was burned at the stake in Rome's #Campo de' #Fiori 17 Febrary in 1600.

Fountain of the Facchino
In Via #Lata, on the side of the #Palazzo De #Carolis, there is a small fountain with the features of a man, rather ruined, who holds a barrel from which water flows: the #Fountain of the #Facchino.
This bust represents a "acquarolo", misnamed
porter. The #Acquaroli were people who, at night, they went to fill barrels and barrels of water, and that during the day they passed from house to house to offer it in exchange for a modest fee, saving people the effort to go and refuel.
In #Rome from 537, when the Goths to take the destroyed city waterworks,
until the end of the sixteenth century, when they were restored, there was scarcity of water and the Romans
They were forced to source the Tiber or the fountains.
The #Acquaroli went at night to stock up probably to avoid paying the fee
on the water. The fountain of Porter is one of the talking statues of Rome, along with #Pasquino, #Madama Lucrezia, Abbate Luigi, il #Marforio e il #Babuino.

The catacomb of St. Valentine
Is a #catacomb of Rome, on the second mile of the Via #Flaminia, now in Viale Marshal Pilsudski, in the modern #Pinciano district.
Valentino died during the persecution of Claudius the Goth (268-270) and his remains, according to sources, were deposited in the estate of the matron #Sabina.
Around the third century was dug in the hillside, a small #catacomb on two floors with galleries that intersected regularly. In the fourth century, expanding the main gallery, it was created a #crypt decorated with beautiful paintings dating between the seventh and eighth centuries: they are here represented rare scenes related to the nativity, the crucifixion and various personalities from the history of the Church.

Garden of Oranges
The Garden, also known as Parco #Savello, fantastic views of the many monuments, roof tops and domes of #Rome, encapsulating flavors of the modern and #medieval on its shady walkways. Upon entering the #Garden of #Oranges, the ancient apse of the #Basilica of #Santa #Sabina appears, while, on the opposite side, scanty remains of the old #Savelli #fortress, drawbridge and towers are visible.

Abbacchio #scottadito
Roasted Roman spring lamb, so succulent the name claims you'll "burn your fingers" in your haste to eat it. When #abbacchio (lamb) is unavailable, once the spring slaughter is over, they switch to less tender #agnello (young mutton).

Trajan's #Markets
Are the most exciting city-center ruins to be recently excavated, the result of years of restoration work. The museum starts with the airy #Great Hall; beyond is the #Great #Hemicycle section, with dispay of important finds from the various forums, as well as well as the Via Biberatica, an ancient street lined with the well-preserved remains of shops and bars. Outside, the Forum of #Trajan holds the #Column of #Trajan, erected to celebrate the emperor's victories in #Dacia and covered top to bottom with reliefs commemorating the highlights of the campaign.
