alt In Catania, the Fountain dell'Amenano

is located on the south side of Piazza del Duomo, opposite the Palace of the Elephants.
The fountain in Piazza Duomo dell'Amenano.

The fountain was built in the mid-nineteenth century in Carrara marble, representing the river amenities such as a young man holding a cornucopia from which flows the water that is poured into a tank from the edge rounded. Water overflowing from this pool, producing a cascade effect that gives the feeling of a sheet. Hence the figure of speech in the Sicilian "linzolu water" to refer to the fountain.

The water falling from the tank flows into the river below, which flows at a level of about two meters below the square. This is now the only place from which you can see the river because all of its course is buried.

Behind a fountain of lava stone staircase leads to the old fish market city market which, together with Vucciria Palermo are among the major attraction of the two Sicilian towns folk.
