The fountain is located on the site of the 17th century Rodati Palace, destroyed by the bombardment in March 1944, and combines in a hourglass-shaped travertine block elements of bronze, Guatemala stone and water.
At its base there is the engraving “Everyone builds the victory of peace”.
The artwork is the showpiece of the Czech sculptor Ivan Theimer who specializes in using bronze and generally produces sculptures with a solid classical impact.
Other important works by Theimer include the three obelisks in the Elysée Palace garden and a bronze high-relief for the façade of Paris’ National Archives. In addition to this fountain, Foligno has another artwork by Theimer: the monument devoted to Giuseppe Piermarini.
