This fountain constructed in 1570 and commissioned by Oliviero Ludovici to supply water to the local population. The basin is narrow, and fed from 4 spouts. The inscription warns of washing clothes in the fountain. It is located adjacent to Palazzo del Monte Frumentario.

The inscription warns that anyone washing in the fountain risks a fine and the confiscation of the offending laundry. It is next to Portico del Monte Frumentario

The fountain dates from the late 1500’s and carries a warning sign “that anyone washing in the fountain risks a fine and confiscation of the laundry”. It is still a functioning fountain but the water is NON POTABLE according to signage posted on the fountain.

This beautiful fountain was an artistic functional water basin that was used by townspeople as a wash basin. It is still beautiful and still contains running water.
