L'Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy. The fountain of Borgo Rivera, said of the 99 Cannelle (spouts) by the number of taps, it is the symbol of the city of L'Aquila. It was built in 1272 but the high checkered walls behind were added in the fifteenth century. Originally it seems that Rivera did there wash the wool that was the object of their lucrative trade. The mascarons may represent figures of the time.
