Críticas:

Winner of the Society of Architectural Historians 2012 Spiro Kostof Book Award sponsored by the Society of Architectural Historians. The Kostof award recognizes the work that, focusing on urbanism and architecture, provides the greatest contribution to our understanding of historical development and change. -- Spiro Kostof Award Society of Architectural Historians "As lavishly produced as it is clearly written, with a beauty that defies its utilitarian message: that a fountain's primary function is to pour water into a basin or shoot a jet into the air; that its decoration is secondary, and often, in fact, dictated by functionality."-Journal of Urban History -- Caroline Vout Journal of Urban History "A goldmine of information... Rinne has written, and Yale University Press has produced, a handsome book that students of Rome, urban planning and hydraulic technology will definitely want to own. Even old Rome hands who think they know the city well will learn much from this study."--Harry B. Evans, Burlington Magazine -- Harry B. Evans Burlington Magazine
