Favorite thing: On a square in the old city, the monument called Fontana dell'aquedotto (fountain of the aqueduct) was erected on October 18th 1908 to commemorate the new aqueduct that brought enough drinkable water to the growing city.
The sculptor was Materno Giribaldi (Giribaldi, not Garibaldi) a local sculptor (1870-1951) that carved many monuments in the city and in the cemetery before he emigrated to Brasil in 1925, where he made also many other sculptures.
