Fons palat. Bracciani’, view of the fountain of palace Taverna-Orsini designed by the architect Antonio Casoni. The fountain, here in its original appearance, was placed between two walls on the top of which were standing two bears bearing the coat of arms of the Orsini family (bear in Italian is ‘orso’, thus this animal was employes as a symbol for the family). From the mouth of these two bears water was springing into the basins of the fountain below. Inscribed on the bottom in Latin and Dutch:’FONS maximé… / P Schenck exc: Amsteloed: cum Privil:’
