This Fountain, located in piazza Cavour, was built in 1543 by Giovanni da Carrara. The drum sustaining the cone is much older, as it dates back to the Roman period. It is covered by bas-reliefs.
The inscription on the fountain mentions Leonardo da Vinci's joy at the vision of this fountain, when he came to Rimini as Cesare Borgia's ingeneer and military councillor. The words engraved say: "Make harmony with the different falls of water, as I saw in the fountain of Rimini"
The fountain was the only source of drinking water until 1912, when the public aqueduct was inaugurated.
