Water tour: between bribes, fountains, troughs and wells

Genova

A waterway between the rivers, fountains, shingles and historic wells in the most hidden corners of the city between Prince and Sarzano. Historically, in Genoa almost every square there was a barge, or a fountain, where the horses of ortholans from the valley of Bisagno, the so-called "bezagnini", dropped on the market days, women went to collect water and where the neighborhoods themselves gathered as a place of socialization, almost attracted to the vital force of this element that flowed from them continuously. But Genoa does not only guard public fountains that have changed over time, but you can still see old shingles and washbasins, wells, nymphs hidden inside noble buildings, caves saved by events happening and beautiful gardens of villas with fountains monumental as Villa Doria Pamphilj. Between its splendid Giardino all'Italiana you can see the Fountain of Neptune, performed by Taddeo Carlone defining the center of the garden and the Dolphin Fountain, the only surviving element of the decorative appliance created by Silvio Cosini on the design of Perin del Vaga. More visible are the subsequent additions to the sculptural group of the Satire riding a dolphin by Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli.
