Fountain in Piazza Gasparri, Milan
Fontana di Piazza Gasparri in Milan is rather inconspicuous compared to other fountains in the centre of the city. Nevertheless, it visibly enlivens the area. The fountain was built in 1960. Almost half a century later, in May 2010, the restoration was finished. At the base of the fountain surrounded by a green lawn there is a round pool of about 600 square meters. In the centre of the reservoir, a bronze sculpture stands. Opposite it, a bridge of white stone slabs spans a river. Right behind the bridge, there is a number of jets shooting water upwards. The church of San Bernardo alla Comasina sits in front of the fountain. The square, in which the fountain stands, was named after the Cardinal and Secretary of State Pietro Gasparri.
