Obviously the first fountains were natural and existed before man or history. It is believed that the first man made water fountains were constructed as aquaducts powered by gravity. Early pressure powered fountains were constructed in the time period of the Roman Empire in the shape of lions and other powerful symbols. The first elaborate fountains were in Italy in the sixteenth century.
