The Fountain in via Umberto I

Designed by Pietro Paolo

We owe the construction of this fountain , placed near the San Sebastiano Gate, to the Farnese family. In the past women used to do the washing there, and people met there during the summer. Men let animals water there on their way back from the countryside, as via Umberto I led directly to the country.
