The Fountain of the Monte di Pietà
The charming Fontana del Monte di Pietà, which stands outside the Palazzo del Monte di Pieta, was created during the reign of Pope Paul V (r. 1605-21).
The fountain sports an eagle and two dragons, the heraldic charges of the coat of arms of the Borghese family to which the pope belonged.
