In 1635, the Descrittione della città di Rieti, published by the young Canon Pompeo Angelotti in honor of Cardinal Giovanni Francesco dei Conti di Bagno destined to the Episcopal chair of Rieti, tells us about the construction of the aqueduct and of its architectural representation, a wonderful fountain located in the highest site of the city, where the main square had stood for centuries.

The tub, made of elegant mixtilinear forms, was adorned by the powerful figures of satyrs and dolphins, unfortunately mutilated. During the twentieth century, the fountain was first dismembered and destined for another location, then relocated right in the area that represents the administrative and social heart of the city.
