NOTES: The Fontana della Pigna (pine cone) was a former Roman fountain which is located against a niche in the wall of the Vatican facing the Cortile della Pigna. The pine cone is bronze and four metres high. The bronze peacocks are copies of statues which adorned Hadrian's tomb (now Castel Sant'Angelo).
