Luckily for us, because the Facchino fountain, less well known than Pasquino and Marforio, is a sculpture of the talking ones. Although they are not, of course, endowed with the ability to speak a word, in the past, they have often found a way to communicate and tell what many, out of fear or carelessness, dared not reveal. The fountain, where I often stop to quenche, is a small male figure with a face disfigured by time and wearing a dress typical of the guild of porters, caught in the act of pouring water from a small barrel. Here is the nickname that has been attributed to her.

If you do not enter this street to rely on the map firmly, you will pass. It is made to stick to the wall of the building, and it is small and is lovely.
