Via degli Staderari
A short distance from Palazzo Madama, the seat of the Senate, there is a huge granite basin, which forms the centrepiece of a fountain.
In 1987, the ancient basin, which was once part of the Baths of Nero, was set up as a part of a fountain to mark the fortieth anniversary of the Constitution of the Italian Republic, which was enacted on December 22nd, 1947.
