A landmark in Palermo – the fountain of Piazza Pretoria

Published on February 25, 2018 by villalauramarie

 

The fountain of Piazza Pretoria, situated in front of the City hall, can be considered one of the major landmarks of Palermo. Designed by Francesco Camilliani for a Tuscan villa, was brought in our city in 1573. Note its concentric circles and the number of tritons, nymphs, gods and youths. For this abundance of nude statues this square was nicknamed    “Piazza della Vergogna”   ( the Square of Shame ) .

One of the photos and the video are taken last October during “Le Vie dei Tesori” ; during all the weekends of this month more than one hundred sites  ( Palaces, churches, gardens, museums etc. ) are open to the tourists  with guided tours. . For our climate and this opportunity, October is an excellent month to visit Palermo and Sicily.
