"Fonte Gaia" (Siena)

This beautiful monumental fountain is in the Piazza del Campo Italy and is supplied with water by a spring 25km (15mi) away. Designed by the great Sienese sculptor Jacopo della Quercia, the marble frame and relief sculptures represent a masterpiece of early Renaissance sculpture. The current reliefs are copies as the originals are displayed in the museum of Santa Maria della Scala. Buona visione!
