Fontana dell'Amenano

Fountain in Catania

Separating Piazza del Duomo from rough-and-tumble food market La Pescheria is gushing Fontana dell'Amenano, a Carrara-marble fountain created by Neapolitan sculptor Tito Angelini in 1867. The work is a tribute to the River Amenano, which once ran overground and on whose banks the Greeks founded the city of Katáne.
