The Root of Contemporary Wall Fountains

Himself a learned man, Pope Nicholas V led the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 till 1455 and was responsible for the translation of hundreds of ancient texts from their original Greek into Latin. He undertook the beautification of Rome to turn it into the model seat of the Christian world. Reconstruction of the Acqua Vergine, a desolate Roman aqueduct which had carried clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away, began in 1453 at the bidding of the Pope. The historical 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 present-day site of the Trevi Fountain was once occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and constructed by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. Adjustments and extensions, included in the restored aqueduct, eventually supplied the Trevi Fountain and the well-known baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona with the necessary water supply.

A small patio or a courtyard is a great spot to put your wall fountain when you seek out peace and quiet. Even a small space can contain a customized one. The necessary elements include a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump regardless of whether it is freestanding or anchored. Traditional, modern, classic, and Asian are just some of the styles from which you can consider.

Also knownas a floor fountain, a stand-alone wall fountain is normally rather large, and its basin is located on the ground.

On the other hand, a fountain attached to a wall can be added onto an existing wall or built into a new wall. A cohesive look can be realized with this style of water feature because it seems to become part of the scenery rather than an added element.
