Partanna, Sicily
The fountain in Partanna stands today almost as a memory of times past.  The decorative urn divides la fontana into two sections; one for drinking water, the other for cleaning laundry.  It was in this long end that laundry was done; the soap and dirty water flowing out from pool to pool, keeping a clean water flow at the mouth of the fountain.
