To mark the completion of the restoration work on the Fountain of Neptune, Fondazione Carisbo and Genus Bononiae are proud to present an exhibition titled "Fountain of Neptune: the architect of waters. Bologna, water for the city from Middle Ages to Renaissance", curated by Francesco Ceccarelli and Emanuela Ferretti.

The exhibition pays homage to the Fountain of Neptune, one of the symbols of Bologna as well as one of the most popular and admired masterpieces of Renaissance art.
The exhibition is part of Bologna Welcome Card network. A special discount will be applied to Card holders. 
The Fountain of Neptune is the tip of the iceberg of an ingenious underground water system that had the purpose of making water available to the population living in the city. The exhibition set up in Santa Maria della Vita between March 16th and June 10th 2018 illustrates the network of aqueducts, canals and conduits that run underneath the city with artwork, documents and selected materials.
