One of the symbols of the street is the FONTANA DELLE  ARTI, a marble fountain, surmounted by a bucket of brushes, two masks, one sad and one happy (the moods of the artists) resting on shelves applied on painters easels.

You are in the heart of Rome, but the silence is so pleasant to make you forget the chaotic traffic (at two steps).

The Ace of Cups legend in Rome

The historic center of Rome awaits you with its beautiful fountains.
Among all, of course, the Trevi Fountain!

The Ace of Cups legend in Rome

But here I want to tell you about what you will never find in the guidebooks: The legend of the ACE OF CUPS.

This sculpture was baptized by  Roman people, The ace of Cups, because it recalls the figure of the playing card.

It is said that this travertine vase-shaped sculpture, built by the architect Salvi (who designed the Trevi Fountain), was positioned to prevent the vision of the fountain to a barber who tormented him with negative opinions about the work!

Whims of the artist!

TREVI - The Ace of Cups in Rome

 

Of course, the Trevi Fountain, remains a destination for romantics who throw a coin to return to Rome, but also couples of lovers….

 

If two of you will drink at the fountain on the right, precisely in the Fountain of the Lovers, you will be together forever! Just try it!TREVI- the Ace of Cups legend in Rome(ps: it’s right next to the Ace of Cups!)

I suggest you sit in this square towards the 13.00 pm, to enjoy the warm rays fall, and  maybe you may eat a piece of “hot pizza bianca“, freshly baked from the famous FORNO (Bakery) in Campo de Fiori, right behind you!

Then continue along Via del Mascherone

Look at the building, which was purchased in the eighteenth century the Papal States, it became the seat of the Religious Mary Immaculate ….
A curiosity, as you are walking, look on the ground at the white line that runs along the sides of the building, if you walk inside you are in the territory of the Pontifical State!

I recommend always nose up … and all around …
