Resting against the grand façade of Palazzo d’Accursio, the fountain was crafted by architect Tommaso Laureti from Palermo, who also designed the renowned Fontana di Nettuno (Fountain of Neptune) in the sixteenth century. The Fountain of Neptune, sculpted by the Flemish artist Giambologna, stands as a testament to Laureti’s artistic prowess.
