V. Morton describes them and also surveys the aqueducts that feed them — a unique and wonderful relic of ancient Rome. The book is illustrated with forty-nine sumptuous colour photographs by Mario Carrieri. These, with more than a hundred other photographs, drawings, maps, and engravings, display the fountains in all their beauty and splendour, their sombre age-old dignity and their undying gaiety and youth.”
