Description

The fountain in Piazza Cairoli, once called Piazza Branca, is situated at the centre of a garden. It was built in 1888 by Ed Andrè, as remembered by an engraving in a corner of the socle. It consists of a quadrangular pond made of granite from Baveno with at the centre a pillar, whose decorations (bronze dauphins around a trident) have gone lost. The pillar supports a circular basin coming from the excavations of 1887 in the nearby Piazza Cenci. Above is a second pillar supporting a basin that pours water.
