    Defined as a public space in the last years of the 15th century, when the city market was moved here from Campidoglio, Piazza Navona was transformed into a very significant example of Roman Baroque architecture and art during the pontificate of Innocent X, who ruled from 1644. until 1655, and whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, overlooked the square.

In the southern part is the Fontana del Moro with a bowl and four tritons by Giacomo della Porta (1575), to which in 1673 Bernini added a statue of a Moor fighting a dolphin. In the northern part is the Fountain of Neptune (1574), also by Giacomo della Porta; a statue of Neptune by Antonio Della Bitta was added in 1878 to create a balance with La Fontana del Moro.
