Photographer's Note

Fountain of Palazzo Rosari Spada - Spoleto
Another little-known Spoleto fountain. It is located in the courtyard of the unfinished Palazzo Rosari Spada, with access from both Via delle Terme and Corso Mazzini. It is enclosed within a high niche. The elliptical-shaped containment tank collects the water that comes out of a cinnamon placed in the mouth of a sculpted face, depicting a satyr. It is flanked by interesting remains of a retaining wall from the Roman era. In documents dated 1839, when the building was already owned by the Marignoli family, the fountain is described "... with a trough for livestock and with a cinnamon for drinking water, placed near the stable".
