"Fontana delle Palle di Cannone" is a fountain at Via di Porta Castello in Rione Borgo in Rome . The fountain was designed by Pietro Lombardi and inaugurated in 1927. The purpose of these fountains was that they should reflect the special character of the respective rione. For the Fontana delle Palle di Cannone, Lombardi sculpted cannonballs placed in the form of a pyramid under a round arch ; the cannonballs are intended to remind of the nearby castle Castel Sant'Angelo and its former function as a defensive work.
