  • Beautiful eighteenth-century fountain ... already from the name one can see strong concepts and ideals, now often forgotten--placed in the historical centre of Isernia in a very pretty square where there are various pubs and restaurants with a small stage for musical performances ...

  • Visiting the historic centre of Isernia, one is struck by the beautiful architecture of the place. To see Piazza Celestine V.

  • The fontana della Fraterna is situated in a beautiful square, a symbol not only of Isernia but dare I say around the Molise! The fountain, composed of blocks of limestone, locally compact, surely taken from an unspecified number of buildings in the town, is formed mainly by a series of six round arches. The first three on the left are supported by circular columns, while on the other side columns are octagonal in shape, the same capitals are of different shape each other. Underlying these columns there are slabs of stone of uncertain origin. Some of them do it presume that come from Roman buildings of which was rich the city of Isernia, as the slab on which are engraved the letters AE PONT. At the center of the fountain there is a marble slab larger than the others, decorated with two dolphins and a flower: this plate is of Roman origin. It can be said without doubt that the fountain dates back to a period not precise, but it is a witness of many historical periods that crossed the city. It was built not only with pieces of Roman origin but also with other pieces of various historical periods and amalgamating existing fountains.

  • Very nice. Roman counting material, is of medieval age. Is now in position other than the historical one.
