Fontana dell'Amenano

Piazza di Benedetto Alonzo, Catania Tempo di lettura: meno di 1 minuto

Built in 1867 by Neapolitan Tito Angelini in Carrara marble, it is the Amenano river as a young man holding a cornucopia from which flows out of the water that is poured into a tank from the edge convex. The water overflowing from this tank, produces a waterfall effect that gives the feel of a bed sheet. Hence the saying in Sicilian "acqua a linzolu".
