After the realization of the ‘Fountain of Two Oceans’ by the Fonderia Marinelli in 1984, Mr. Patrick Bowlen, owner of the Broncos football team, commissioned a new work from Marinelli : a monumental fountain for the new Broncos Stadium in Denver. Realized by the architect Dudi Berreti, in collaboration with Ferdinando Marinelli Jr. and the sculptor Sergio Benvenuti, it represents the seven Broncos horses, symbol of the team, galloping towards the entrance of the stadium. The fountain was inaugurated in front of the new stadium in 2001.
