This is a low resolution image for the web, the print you'll get has sharper detail. One of the several drinking fountains in Rome. This one belongs to the Trastevere neighborhood, with the logo of the rione (lion heads). Until the time of the Emperor Augustus, the area was immediately outside the city, linked to a port upriver, and specialized in trade. In Augustus' time it was so densely populated, that the Emperor established here one of the the guards' residences. To this day, the "Trasteverini", the inhabitants of Trastevere, are "authentic Romans", known for their dialectic use of Italian and down to earth "live and let live" approach to life, who for centuries have lived in a working environment of cultural integration.
