NOTES; This building is the official seat of the Mayor of Rome. The two colossal Roman statues representing the Nile and Tiber were formerly in Constantine's baths on the Quirinal Hill and were moved here by Michelangelo. The fountain basins were added in 1589 when the Acqua Felice aqueduct reached the hill. The original statue of Marcus Aurelius is thought to date from 175 AD, and is in the Capitoline Museum. A replica was placed outside in 1981.
