The Beautiful Early Wonders by Bernini

Beautiful  Early Wonders Bernini 19759261311073.jpg The Beautiful Early Wonders by Bernini Bernini's earliest water fountain, named Barcaccia, is a breath taking work of art seen at the foot of the Trinita dei Monti in Piaza di Spagna. This spot is still filled with Roman locals and tourists who like to exchanging gossip or going over the day's news. One of the city’s most fashionable meeting spots are the streets surrounding Bernini's fountain, which would undoubtedly have brought a smile to the great Bernini. In around 1630, Pope Urbano VIII helped Bernini launch his professional life with the construction of his first water fountain. The fountain’s central theme is based on a massive boat slowly sinking into the Mediterranean Sea. The great flooding of the Tevere that covered the whole region with water in the 16th was memorialized by this momentous fountain as recorded by reports dating back to this period. In 1665, France was graced by Bernini's one-and-only prolonged journey outside of Italy.

The circulated documents and illustrated publications of the day contributed to the development of scientific technology, and were the primary means of spreading useful hydraulic concepts and fountain ideas throughout Europe. An un-named French water feature engineer was an internationally renowned hydraulic innovator in the late 1500's. By creating landscapes and grottoes with incorporated and ingenious water features, he started off his profession in Italy by getting Royal commissions in Brussels, London and Germany. The publication, “The Principles of Moving Forces,” written near the end of his lifetime in France, became the fundamental text on hydraulic mechanics and engineering. Updating principal hydraulic advancements of classical antiquity, the publication also highlights contemporary hydraulic technologies. The water screw, a technical means to move water, and devised by Archimedes, was highlighted in the book. Sunlight heated up the liquid in two hidden containers adjacent to the beautiful water feature were displayed in an illustration. Actuating the water feature is hot liquid which expands and rises to close up the water lines. Models for pumps, water wheels, water attributes and garden ponds are also mentioned in the book.
