Long Description:
The first documented fountain at this location was from 1266. It was replaced with new ones in 1315 and 1504.

The current fountain was designed by artist Paolo Antonio Pisoni. The date 1784 on the column is in fact wrong, because of a delay of the delivery of certain parts it was erected in 1785. This is a copy of 1937.

Visit Instructions:
Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.

Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
