Water Clock, Rome
On the western part of the Villa Borghese park, not far from the San Carlino theater and Viale del Muro Torto street you can see very unusual water clocks. They come into effect due to the constantly moving water in their gear.

They designed by the Dominican friar Giovanni Embriako and they were exhibited at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1867.
