  • This fountain constructed in 1570 and commissioned by Oliviero Ludovici to supply water to the local population. The basin is narrow, and fed from 4 spouts. The inscription warns of washing clothes...

  • A work of art to which the locals has become visually accustomed enough to not do hardly the case. Beautiful font from the 1500s with drinking troughs. On it are the words of the sanction for those who went there to "wash clothes illegally". A fine shield and the confiscation of the "clothes". Recently restored it appears well preserved and maintained. Perhaps it should be valued and protected more.
  • Beautiful fountain from 1570 placed next to arched porticoes with unfortunately very damaged frescoes. An engraving intimates the prohibition to wash clothes in the fountain, under penalty of seizure of the same.
