During my guided tour, we stopped here the longest , so I imagine it might have the most sites to see. The Madonna Statue is one of those: “you can’t miss it”, sites, and I highly recommend snapping a photo. It dates to the ancient romans and the fountain was built during the Renaissance. There’s also the Arco della Corso that was a bridge used by legal personnel to go from residence to office without going to the ground level. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and the whole town was buzzing with activities.

This fountain sits in the middle of Piazza delle Erbe. It was commissioned by Cansignorio Della Scala to celebrate the bringing of water from the Lori River to the Piazza and was completed in 1368.

The statue and the fountain have been built largely from assembled Roman pieces. The large red Verona marble bowl dates from Roman times as does the body of the statue although the missing arms and head were added during construction.

The stem of the pedestal depicts the faces of four mythical rulers of Verona being Vero, Alboino king of the Lombards, Berengario and Verona regina.

The statue holds a copper scroll on which is written the ancient motto of the city being "Verona is a city that provides justice and loves to be praised.

This fountain dates to 1368 and was constructed from materials salvaged from the Arena and the old Roman Baths. It was erected to celebrate the completion of the aqueduct built to supply Verona with water from the river Lori. The statue of the Madonna does not represent the Virgin Mary, but the 'The Lady of Verona' and symbolises the City. It was a Roman statue erected on Verona's Capitol Hill in 360AD. It had been damaged, the head missing, but Cansignorio della Scala, Ruler of Verona, directed that the statue be repaired and erected on the central pedestal of the fountain. I love history.

This is a fountain just in the heart of Verona. I didn't like that this square is all full of souvenirs shops and you can not enjoy the place.

Again, why not go see this? It's free, it's in Piazza delle Erbe, it will cool you off on those boiling hot days! It's beautiful and it was built in the late 1300's.

The pretty Madonna Verona Fountain is right in the middle of a square and surrounded by market stalls selling tourist tat.
A nice stop when sightseeing.

When your wandering around Piazza delle Erbe (or drinking coffee in it!) take a moment to look at this interesting fountain and statue. It's said to be the symbol of the city of Verona and to have been standing in this spot for some 650 years. Interestingly it's not a statue of the Madonna at all. In fact the body is Roman with the arms and head being added in medieval times! If you look closely you might spot the motto of the city - Est iusti latrix urbs haec laudis amatrix - which means something like 'This city is a dispenser of justice and a lover of praise'. Not sure about the latter part of that but certainly the statue makes a nice focal point for the Piazza, or would do without all the stalls!

It was built by Cancinorio Della Scala, in 1368. In full accordance with the emerging installations of the Renaissance, the fountain was made using the ancient heritage. The fountain is based on a Roman thermal pool made of local red marble. The statue itself is also Roman, about 380 BC.e. It was found in a worse shape than the Venus de Milo - not only without arms, but also without a head. However, she gave her new arms and head, the Veronese found a symbolic meaning in this: the body symbolizes the ancient Roman origin of Verona, and the head and arms represent its current greatness. For those who did not understand the symbolism, the statue holds a copper scroll with the words: Est juste leatrix urbs haec et laudis matrix - "Verona is a city that ensures justice and loves to be praised." Let's not argue with the motto of the city: Verona has a lot to praise!

This is a nice fountain in a beautiful square. It is not outstanding and overshadowed by the surrounding attractions but is worth a look at when you are in the square.
