De Cape 'E Ciucci Fountain

This fountain was built during the 18th century in stone and two faces are in marble. The name derives form the old custom of when donkey (ciucci) which came down from the village of Pogerola laden with fruit, vegetables, and wood, were led here to drink. Since 1974 the fountain has also been the center point for a nativity scene, made in limestone and tufa, with characteristic figures, many of which are submerged by the flowing fountain water. The idea originated from Giuseppe Buonocore, Vincenzo Livano, Nicola Pepe and today the tradition is carried on by the Infante family. (information from the sign next to the fountain in the photo)
