Hiding among the ancient beauty of Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi you’ll find Bernini’s Lion. After being denied a chance to design the fountain by Pope Innocent X, Bernini planted a model to be seen only by the Pope. On seeing the model, the Pope was captivated, and hired Bernini for the fountain, and of course, the striking Lion hidden within.
