Fontana del Moro is an impressive sculptural composition that once underwent changes, but kept its majesty and significance.
At the southern end of Piazza Navona
there is Fontana del Moro.
The first part of del Moro fountain was built by master Giacomo della Porta in 1580's. The fountain with a pool made of pink marble was decorated with four sculptures of newts. In 1654 according to the order of Olimpia Maidalchini, the daughter-in-law of the Pope, the concept of the fountain was elaborated by Giovanni Bernini. The skillful architect placed a moor fighting with a dolphin in the middle of the sculpture.
