The carpet of memory fountain

Sant'Agata Feltria

stands along the road that leads into the inhabited area of the main town on the site of the old public washhouse-drinking trough where dwellers from outlying villages stopped with their animals, either those they used for transport or those they were bringing to the village to sell at market. The existing area and walls have been recovered to create this fountain, a multi-coloured and fragrant Oriental carpet. This masterpiece is in mosaic, a Byzantine technique that uses enamels, gold, marbles and murrine glass rods.
