In 1629 Pope Urban VIII, finding the earlier fountain insufficiently dramatic.
Asked Bernini to sketch possible renovations, but when the he died the project was abandoned.
Bernini's lasting contribution was to resite it from the other side of the square to face the Quirinal Palace.
Though Bernini's project was torn down for Salvi's fountain, there are many Bernini touches as it was built.
An early, striking and influential model by Pietro da Cortona also exists.
Competitions had become the rage during the Baroque era to design buildings, fountains, and even the Spanish Steps.
In 1730 Pope Clement XII organized a contest in which Nicola Salvi initially lost to Alessandro Galilei but due to the outcry in Rome over the fact that a Florentine won, he was awarded the commission anyway.
Work began in 1732, and the fountain was completed in 1762, long after Clement's death, when Pietro Bracci's Neptune was set in the central niche.
