A Wall Water Feature to Fit Your Decor

There are any variety of models to pick from such as traditional, contemporary, classic, or Asian.Wall Water Feature Fit Decor 14774576666905.jpg

With its basin laid on the ground, freestanding wall fountains, or floor fountains, are normally quite large in size.

A wall-mounted fountain can either be integrated onto a wall already in existence or fitted into a wall under construction. A unified look can be realized with this type of water feature because it seems to become part of the scenery rather than an added element.

When and Where Did Water Features Emerge?

Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, governed the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of ancient classical Greek documents into Latin. He undertook the embellishment of Rome to turn it into the worthy capital of the Christian world.Water Features Emerge? 14774576666905.jpg At the bidding of the Pope, the Aqua Vergine, a damaged aqueduct which had carried clean drinking water into Rome from eight miles away, was restored starting in 1453. The ancient Roman custom of marking the arrival point of an aqueduct with an imposing celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The Trevi Fountain now occupies the area previously filled with a wall fountain built by Leon Battista Albert, an architect commissioned by the Pope. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually allowed it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the famed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
