A famous wall fountain, from the Renaissance period, was built by architect Leon Battista Alberti. The Renaissance, which literally translates into rebirth, french origin, He was an Italian author, artist, architect, poet, priest, linguist, philosopher, cryptographer and general Renaissance humanist polymath. Instead of that list of professions and skills, he normally went by as an architect. Pope Nicholas V commissioned the architect to build a wall fountain where the Trevi Fountain is now located. The Trevi Fountain stands 85.3 feet high and 65.6 feet wide. I it the largest baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. Baroque is the artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, and music. Pope Nicholas V was attempting at rebuilding the Acqua Vergine, the ruined Roman aqueduct which had brought drinking water to the city from eight miles away. He desired to revive the Roman custom of marking the arrival point of an aqueduct with a mostra, a grand commemorative fountain. This is where the Trevi Fountain comes into play.
