MILAN Fontanella casts cast iron, commonly called "green dragon" for the shape of the bite and the color of the stem, or "widow" for the continuous casting that comes out of the brass nozzle, assimilated to the inconsolable cry of a widow. Taping the hole with a finger leads the water out of the top, making it easier to drink without bending too much; the drainage tank is made so that it can serve as a watering can for animals. The coat of arms, embossed on the fountain front, reminds the thirsty users of those who can thank for the simple, but rewarding relief of fresh, free drink. Photography, Piazzale Lugano in Bovisa, Peripheral District of Milan, 1992
