Quattro Fiumi and Sant’Agnese in Agone



‘Quattro Fiumi and Sant’Agnese in Agone’, translated into English: ‘Four rivers and St Agnes in agony’. Sounds terrible. But if you recall the film Angels and Daemons, there was a scene with a professor rescuing a cardinal in a fountain designed by Bernini. The scene takes place in Rome at Piazza Navona. The fountain is called Four Rivers and is indeed created by Bernini. It is located in front of a church, the patron of which is St Agnes in Agony.


Not being able to travel for some time now, I decided to review my favourite photographs made while travelling in recent years. This one is from Rome, seen while sitting on the edge of the Four Rivers fountain looking up onto St Agnes in Agony church facade, Autumn 2015.
