On this site was the Stadium built by Domitian, hence, the elliptical form of the piazza. In antiquity, it was used for horse-racing, and in the Middle Ages, the Popes would have the piazza flooded and float small boats on the lake for aquatic festivals. The style of Piazza Navona is richly Baroque, featuring the works of two great masters: Bernini and Borromini. The Fountain of Rivers, by Bernini (1647-51) in the center of the square, represents the four largest rivers of the world: the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube, and the Rio della Plata. The fountains at the extremes of the piazza are, to the south, the Fountain of the Moor, by Bernini, and the Fountain of Neptune, to the north. The latter dates from 1878.
