Fonte monumentale di Piazza del Grano

Located in what was then the mercantile center of town, this magnificent fountain was sculpted by the Renaissance artist Antonio Ghini in 1465. The outer portion of the basin is divided into rectangular panels decorated with designs of plants and various allegorical figures.  In the middle of the basin there rises up a tall jug out of which the water spurts.  The jug sits on a triangular base displaying the coats of arms of the two powerful men who had the fountain built: Palmieri and Nanni.
