To mark the completion of restoration work on the Fountain of Neptune, the Fondazione Carisbo and Genus Bononiae are proud to present an exhibition entitled "Fountain of Neptune: the architect of waters. Bologna, water for the city from Middle Ages to Renaissance", curated by Francesco Ceccarelli and Emanuela Ferretti, in the Oratory and Museum of Santa Maria della Vita, from March 16 to June 10, 2018.
The exhibition – realised with the help of the Department of Architecture at the University of Bologna – will take visitors through one of the most intriguing chapters in the history of Bologna, narrating, for the first time, the story of how the city’s public fountains were built in the period when Pope Pius IV was renovating the city centre.
The Fountain of Neptune is an iconic monument, and the fitting conclusion to an extraordinary season of visionary and grandiose architectural and hydraulic works that still grace the city’s centre and its public spaces.
