  • Interesting and unusual the way the water runs away under the fountain. Worth a quick photo stop, and the cafe just to the right sold very nice cannoli  more »
  • It lies on the South side of Piazza Duomo and in front of the Plazzo degli Elefanti. Built in 1867 by the Neapolitan master Tito Angelini, in Carrara marble. Represents the Amenano River. The young man has in his hand a cornucopia from which gushes water that falls in a basin also in marble. The water overflowing the baciaproduz a ripple effect that gives the feeling of a sheet of water which in your time runs about 2 meters under the square. Behind the fountain a vulcanica stone staircase leads to the Peschrria, important market of the city
