FONTE OLIVIERA
Mar. 2019 • Couples
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.

One of several fountains, basins, along Via San Francesco. The noble Oliviero Ludovici commissioned this fountain in 1570 to supply water to the local people.

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

CANT WASH YOUR CLOTHES HERE
Mar. 2018 • Couples
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.
