It had the shape of a wooden pinnacle made of cast iron fused as tree trunks, while its four dials were visible from every direction. The hydrochronometer is a kind of a water clock.
In 1873, the Water clock was back in Rome and was placed in Villa Borghese gardens into a fountain realized by the architect Gioacchino Ersoch. It’s still placed there and works 24/7.

Stop At: Galleria Borghese, Piazzale del Museo Borghese 5, 00197 Rome Italy

The Galleria Borghese (English: Borghese Gallery) is an art gallery in Rome, housed in the former Villa Borghese Pinciana. At the outset, the gallery building was integrated with its gardens, but nowadays the Villa Borghese gardens are considered a separate tourist attraction. The Galleria Borghese houses a substantial part of the Borghese collection of paintings, sculpture and antiquities, begun by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, the nephew of Pope Paul V (reign 1605–1621). The Villa was built by the architect Flaminio Ponzio, developing sketches by Scipione Borghese himself, who used it as a villa suburbana, a country villa at the edge of Rome.

Scipione Borghese was an early patron of Bernini and an avid collector of works by Caravaggio, who is well represented in the collection by his Boy with a Basket of Fruit, St Jerome Writing, Sick Bacchus and others. Other paintings of note include Titian’s Sacred and Profane Love, Raphael’s Entombment of Christ and works by Peter Paul Rubens and Federico Barocci.

Stop At: Basilica Parrochiale San Lorenzo in Lucina, Piazza di San Lorenzo in Lucina 6, 00186 Rome Italy

the name/topnym of the square and the church is quite uncertain. For many years it has been believed that Lucina was a Roman matron, full of mercy, who founded her home following the ancient custom of certain Patrician residences of ‘ecclesia domestica’. That means the private house was dedicated to the religious worship, instead of in a public basilica. Afterwords Lucina donated her house to the Roman Church, which thus became the first foundation of the future church of San Lorenzo.
