There are literally hundreds of water fountains all over Italy gushing with water, Baroque details and sculpture.
Often we are mesmerized by the immense works of art without seeing the cute little details.
This grumpy little water god got my attention when he blew in my ear as I walked by the old ‘Quattro Fontane’ near the center of Messina.
Unfortunately there is no more water as only half of the fountain survived the earthquake and tsunami of early last century.
The fountain’s ghost spoke to me and I thought I’d share it’s spirit.
