Description

A street view of the Piazza Navona. The Palazzo Pamphili and Sant' Agnese in Agone church appear in the background. The church's dome and towers elevate the skyline. The fountain on the facing left is the Fontana del Moro. The Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi appears on the right in the background. Its obelisk breaks the horizon line of residential housing. People walk about and sit on benches in the piazza. An empty bench appears on the far facing left.
