  • This is a street furniture by now disappeared from other cities. But even in Rome begin to run low. Oh blessed youth, when in each square you quench their thirst as well. In the present day are subject to vandals. Too bad

  • If you find yourself walking the streets of the eternal city, whether you're downtown or in the suburbs, certainly there will escape of notice, on street corners, the iron balusters anchored to the sidewalk, from which emerges a jet of water. Among the people is a real institution and, for the shape of cinnamon from which fresh water comes out, these small fountains, with affection, were nicknamed "nasoni". Always quench the people of all walks of life, from the poor to the rich, from the hiker at resident, even animals, without asking anything in return, only service was free of charge for the benefit of all. In Rome, there are plenty of examples from the characteristic cylindrical shape and Acea, the company that manages this precious historical and social heritage known worldwide, is responsible for ensuring, with continuous controls and monitors, the flow, and that water It is always good to our health. Due to the recent water crisis, daughter of our times, many nasoni ceased to deliver, because water is a resource to be safeguarded. When will come the summer, with heat exhaustion, we will go again looking for a big nose to drink, like a hidden treasure that we found.

  • The public drinking fountains now exist only in Rome. The name comes from the shape of these particular forms of Art. During the last dry season some were closed. There should be a maintenance and cleaning of discharges.
