Description

The Triton Fountain is located at the center of Barberini Square in Rome and is one of the best examples of Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s work. The fountain depicts a Triton resting on a shell and four dolphins from whose mouths shoot water. On the dolphins’ bodies you can see a number of bees and keys. The bees are the symbol of the coat of arms of the Bernini family, the keys are the coat of arms of the Popes. In fact, it was Pope Urban VIII, who commissioned the fountain to decorate the Palazzo Barberini, which now houses the National Gallery of Ancient Art Palazzo Barberini.
