Elaborate fountains are among the most characteristic elements of the baroque urban architecture of Rome. The two-hour guided tour starting at the Fontana del Tritone (Gian Lorenzo Bernini) and continuing on to the Fontana di Trevi (Nicola Salvi) and the Fontana di Villa Medici (Annibale Lippi) brings together art historical information with the musical "recreations" of these fountains in the "Fontane di Roma" (1916), the first of three symphonic poems with which Ottorino Respighi (1879‒1936) elevated the city on the Tiber to the eternal city of late romantic concert literature.
Please comunicate your binding registration by 15 September 2021 at fiorini[at]dhi-roma.it. Questions about the tour can also be addressed to the e-mail address provided.
