Via Valle


Among the visual symbols of the community, perhaps the most famous is the fountain in Mezzacà, called tricuspid (1606) by virtue of its three characteristic pinnacles above the bronze lion’s head from which the water flows. The other fountain dates from 1581, built for the vice-regent F. Gozzi. At its centre is a lion’s head surrounded by floral objects and at the sides two pilasters, bearing coats of arms, above which there is the name of the vice-regent. The architect Angelici said this about these two fountains: “The two fountains in Serina, small in size but beautiful, which, while rustic in nature, reflect the town’s attention to architectural detail and appear likely to have been designed and built by local stonemasons after spending time in Venice”.
