Rome, Italy
Fountain of the Four Rivers and Chiesa di Santa Agnese, Piazza Navona, Rome !

Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers faces Chiesa di Sant’Agnese in Agore ( its facade was designed by Bernini bitter rival Borromini )
It’s traditionally held that the statues of Bernini’s Fountain cover their eyes in disgust from Borromini’s Church!
But Bernini completed the fountain 2 years before Borromini started work on the facade.
