PIAZZA FARNESE

The square is named after the massive palace conceived by Michelangelo and Antonio da Sangallo for the cardinal Alessandro Farnese. The twin fountains facing the building were erected in 1626, using two ancient Egyptian granite tubs from the Caracalla Baths, decorated with a leonine head and two rings. The Church of Santa Brigida, and the Palazzo Mandosi are also overlooking this major Roman square.
