  • Near the bridge that connects the new town with the old town you will find this fountain which, once dated to the third century. a, c. was the oldest in Italy, while today is a trend towards a building dating back to the Renaissance. The fountain consists of two pages, a revolt in the Northwest and one in the Southeast reaching up to five meters high, divided into three blocks of four caryatids supporting the lintel with luxurious decoration. Very beautiful are inserted between the caryatids reliefs showing the metamorphosis of Dirce, Salmacis and Biblide, turned into sources. This beautiful monument should be protected and enhanced, as we've seen it used as a bivouac. The plane then the fountain and the nearby bridge of a huge Palace, a veritable monstrosity building, among the worst of the many we unfortunately encountered, takes the visitor to wonder who the author of this crazy project and especially who has authorized execution.
