Habemus aquam!

Multi-faucet drinking fountain, piazza XX Settembre, Livorno
Finally we have running water again. Luckily there are still around several of these century-old drinking water fountains which, in the lower parts of Livorno, have never ceased to supply drinking water. Fixing them with multiple faucets is probably one of the few positive things done in these days.

Yeah! Century old. I hope that doesn't mean they've got lead in them.

Thank goodness. Nice photos.

Jack said...

It is a clever stopgap solution.

Dina said...

Congratulations!
I love your title.
What a photo! A practical idea but looks anachronistic.
May Livorno never know such troubles again.

Revrunner - I think only the outside is that old, all the plumbing is surely more recent.
