Rome. In the Piazza di Spagna at the base of the Spanish Steps is the Fontana della Barcaccia (Fountain of the Old Boat), built in 1627-29.

Fontana della Barcaccia (English: Fountain of the Old Boat) is a Baroque fresh-water fountain in the Piazza di Spagna in Rome, Italy, just below the Spanish Steps. It is so named because it is in the shape of a half-sunken ship with water overflowing its bows. The fountain was commissioned by Pope Urban VIII and was completed in 1627 by Pietro Bernini and his son Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Fontana della Barcaccia (Fountain of the old boat) at the bottom of the Spanish steps. A fountain built to look as a half-sunken ship, in remembrance of the Tiber flood that hit Rome in 1598.
