Favorite thing: On the central island of the marble paved square are severeal interesting statues.
The Fountain of Madonna di Verona which Cansignorio commissioned in 1368: a column decorated with heads and symbolic fugures in relief and supporting a Roman statue rises out of circular basin from which the water overflows into a wider and lower one.


Fondest memory: Known as Madonna di Verona, on the book she hold is written in Latin, 'EST IUSTI LATRIX URBS HAEC ET LAUDIS AMATRIX'.
