Where would the Margutta fountain be if not in Via Margutta, the artists' street? It was designed by the architect Pietro Lombardi in 1927 as part of a series of fountains that were supposed to improve the appearance of the city and to replace the unattractive cast-iron fountains. Ornamentation on the fountain is in the form of artists' tools: brushes, callipers, palettes and easels. The two masks from which the water gushes into small square tanks are rather curious. They have contrasting expressions, one cheerful and the other sad, and are supposed to represent the contrasting fortunes of artists.
