Fontana dei 12 mesi


I'm not really into today Theme day (water) but I would like to show you this fountain that it's called "of 12 months" because there is a statue of each month of the year all around the basin (I'll take it better in advanced Spring). It has been built in 1898 by an artist call Carlo Ceppi. It's also known as "la fontana del Ceppi"

Non sono iscritto al Tema del giorno (acqua) ma mi piace mostrare questa fontana denominata "dei 12 mesi" perché c'è una statua per ogni mese dell'anno tutt'attorno al bacino (la riprenderò meglio in avanzata Primavera). E' stata costruita nel 1898 da Carlo Ceppi: la fontana del Ceppi.

I like the idea of the fountain's theme, and, as usual, I'd love to see it in person. Some day!

Looks really wintery. In different seasons will be a good variation.

What do we do without water? I wonder. Great post for the theme, but why are you not into it?

HAppy theme day =)

It looks like a beautiful spot. And it has your "blue" touch to it :-)

it does look like a dull sky - pretty much like the one outside right now - will have to get off shopping soon nonetheless.
