Fountain of the Flood - Villa Lante Bagnaa (VT)

It is the starting point of the waterfall that, along a single axis, leads up to the large square fountain in the center of the beautiful Italian garden. It is a cave fountain located between the two Lodges of the Muses in the background of a small square, a kind of outdoor theater, a recurring motif of the Italian Renaissance villas.
Symbolizing the water that flows from the native state, sudden jets of water could bathe guests.
The two delightful buildings depict the muses and the grill of San Lorenzo, protector of Viterbo.
They were places of rest and delight; jets of water came out of the side eaves to play wet jokes on the guests. On both sides stands the heraldic shrimp of the Gambara family.
The visitor is welcomed by a herm with four heads placed in the center of the scene.
The four-sided statue represents a Roman God and was originally at the center of the Conservone in the Public Park. (SEE WS)
