Secret Rome – Berardi’s Water Clock

An example of the kind of thing covered by Secret Rome, mentioned in the previous blog, is Berardi’s Water Clock on the Via del Gesu. As mentioned already, some of the listings in this book have limited opening hours, and this clock can only be seen if the doorway to the Palazzo Berardi is open and can then only be viewed from the street. The clock was designed in 1870 by Dominican priest, Giovan Battista Embriaco

Also mentioned in Secret Rome is another water clock by Embriaco, which is on the Pincio and can be seen at anytime. You can see more about these water clocks at our travel blog.
