The fountain of Piazza delle Cinque Scole - a.k.a. the Fontana del Pianto.
Originally installed to bring a supply of fresh water to the Ghetto, adjacent to one of the
gates that sealed off the area each evening, in what was at the time Piazza Giudia.
The main basin, decorated with four gorgons' heads, was removed during the fountain's
temporary move to the Janiculum, but replaced on its subsequent return.
Nearby, two popular but very different restaurants - Sora Margherita, and Al Pompiere.
