FELICE AQUEDUCT
Image 1: View of the monumental fountain facade fed by the Felice Aqueduct
The Felice Aqueduct was begun in 1583 by Pope Gregory XIII and carried out by Pope Sixtus V between 1585 and 1589 in order to supply water to the higher districts of the city between the Viminal and Quirinal hills; the aqueduct was fed by the springs of Colonna also used by the ancient Aqua Alexandrina aqueduct built by Emperor Alexander Severus in 222-226 AD.
Its present appearance consists of a triple arch, built of peperino and travertine (Arch of Sixtus V or delle Pere); the other arches of the aqueduct were pulled down in order to make space for the construction of the Termini Station, the aqueduct ends at Piazza San Bernardo and the water flows through a monumental fountain known as the Fountain of Moses.
