Fontana di Orione
Dedicated to Orion, the giant huntsman in Greek mythology who is considered to be the founder of the city, this fountain is located in the wonderful piazza Duomo, in front of the local cathedral. It was designed by Giovann’Agnolo Montorsoli, a friar and renowned sculptor of Rome during the 16th century and it was realized by him with the aid of local artists. It is made out of Carrara marble, one of the most precious Italy has to offer, and boasts a pyramidal structure with different tanks set on top of each other. At the statue’s bottom there are four bearded figures representing the rivers Nile, Tiber, Ebro, and the local brook of Camaro.
