Roman Time 5

Rome Pincio Waterclock 1

We also saw this unusual water clock in Rome last month. It is in the garden on the Pincio Hill, which overlooks Piazza del Popolo. It was made by the Dominican priest and scientist Giambattista Embriaco in 1867. Well that’s the date given on the sign anyway; some websites state that it was actually constructed in 1873.
