The fountain in the Piazza di Campitelli was designed by Giacomo della Porta. It was originally placed in the center of the square, before being moved, by order of Pope Innocent XI, away from the Chiesa di Santa Maria in Campitelli following the church's restoration and enlargement. The fountain is fed by the Acqua Felice and is decorated with various friezes and large masks from which the water spurts. It bears the coats of arms of four influential local families and the effigies of the Senate and the Roman people.
