Four Taps

Drinking fountain with four taps, Piazza del Municipio, Livorno
A new drinking fountain with four taps in Piazza del Municipio. The body of the fountain was made from the base of an old lamp post and it is placed just behind the stop of the shuttle buses which carry cruise passengers in town. Now our guests will be able to quench their thirst, but there are still no public bathrooms available for them.

I met this lady at “Naturalia”: she was selling teas and infusions, but I took her picture anyway.
