You will likely come across this in your walking tour. It is about 100 years old and sculpturally quite impressive but lacks the impact of similar fountains in Rome. It is pleasant enough and a good photo opportunity but lacks any major historical context.

It is a nice fountain that reminded me of others I’ve seen, such as, those in Rome’s Naviona Plaza. It's worth a short stop to take a couple photos.

This is located in a large square and the day we visited there were several "buskers" playing guitar, or playing accordion and trumpet etc. to entertain passersby.

We walked passed the fountain during the day followed by an evening stroll a day later. Worth seeing both aspects. Great area to people watch and enjoy the ambience
