Women at the Village Fountain,
Gambatesa, September 1960

Women at the village fountain, 1960, 49 KB

Gambatesa, September 1960

The fountain lies in a square at the southern end of the village in a place called Largo della Fontana, or, the open space around the fountain.  The water-pot is called a tina in dialect.

The crest of the fountain reads 1905, although the source is of course much older than that.  The waterspouts appear to be the head of a bearded man with wavy hair.  There are many more notes about Gambatesa's Largo Fontana on this site.
