How Technical Concepts of Outdoor Spread

How Technical Concepts of Outdoor Spread Spreading useful hydraulic information and water fountain design ideas throughout Europe was accomplished with the printed documents and illustrated publications of the time. A globally recognized pioneer in hydraulics in the later part of the 1500's was a French fountain engineer, whose name has been lost to history. His experience in making landscapes and grottoes with integrated and brilliant water attributes began in Italy and with mandates in Brussels, London and Germany. He wrote a publication entitled “The Principles of Moving Forces” towards the conclusion of his life while in France which came to be the basic tome on hydraulic mechanics and engineering. The publication modified key hydraulic discoveries since classical antiquity as well as explaining contemporary hydraulic technologies. The water screw, a mechanical method to move water, and invented by Archimedes, was highlighted in the book. An decorative water feature with sunlight warming the water in two containers hidden in an neighboring room was shown in one illustration. The end result: the water fountain is stimulated by the hot liquid expanding and ascending up the pipes. Pumps, water wheels, water attributes and garden pond concepts are covered in the publication.

Bernini: The Master of Italy's Greatest Water Fountains

Bernini: The Master of Italy's Greatest Water Fountains The Barcaccia, a beautiful water fountain built at the base of the Trinita dei Monti in Piaza di Spagna, was Bernini's earliest fountain. To this day, this spot is flooded with Roman locals and travelers alike who enjoy conversation and each other's company. Today, the city streets around Bernini's water fountain are a trendy place where people go to meet, something which the artist would have been pleased to learn.Bernini: Master Italy's Greatest Water Fountains 0936875096436.jpg In about 1630, the great master built the very first water fountain of his career at the behest of Pope Ubano VIII. The fountain’s central motif is based on a massive ship slowly sinking into the Mediterranean. Period reports dating back to the 16th century show that the fountain was built as a monument to those who lost their lives in the great flooding of the Tevere. In 1665, France was graced by Bernini's only extended trip outside of Italy.
