The fountain of Piazza Castello is an excellent set for numerous kisses between lovers. How many marriage proposals among those squirts of water! Indeed there is no better place to kneel down, hand out a ring and - perhaps - say “yes”.
The fountain is nominated “Turta di spus” because of its shape and the “fan-shaped” squirt at the top. Its position is magnificent - in front of Sforzesco monument - it greets the Filarete Tower and it enriches the street view from via Dante. The fountain is made by Vicenza stones, agents atmospheric resistant.
The fountain was realized by AEM - the past and the official electric enterprise of the city - in the 30s of the twentieth century.
After it was taken off because of the II World War and the archeological site of Cairoli subway in 1959, some people forgot about it. Later, fortunately, this monument has placed back to refresh and illuminate this pretty corner of Milan which dominate in front of the Castle and all gardens around
