The Tortoise Fountain (Italian: Fontana delle Tartarughe) is a fountain in Rome. He is on the small Piazza Mattei in Rome Rione Sant'Angelo in the town. The square is surrounded by the palaces belonging to the powerful Mattei family. Fed by the aqueduct of the Acqua Vergine, the fountain was really close to the Piazza Giudea, with a market provided. By pressing the Muzio Mattei he was, however, built on the square in front of his palace. As compensation, the family undertook to pave the square and keep the fountain clean. The fountain was built in 1581, designed by Giacomo della Porta. The work was carried out by the sculptor Taddeo Landini, who was to create four ephebes and eight dolphins that were originally in marble, but were eventually executed in bronze. The work was completed 1588th There are four of the dolphins were not put into effect because of the lack of water pressure did not allow the intended height of the fountain. These dolphins have been used for the Fontana della terrine, which was erected in the Campo de 'Fiori and was later transferred from the Chiesa Nuova.
