In Largo Campo square, you can admire the” Fishes Fountain”, due to the famous architect Luigi Vanvitelli. The fountain looks like a semi-circular pool on two steps. The facade, trapezoidal, is marked by four pilasters topped by a pediment and four marble vases.
The fountain has five water gushes: one from a marble basin placed in a recess at the center of the gable, two from dolphins placed on the edge of the tub, and two from Bacchus masks placed between the two pairs of pilasters.
The square has a double face: by day is a shopping area and in the evening, when the shops are closed and restaurants and bars open, the square is full of young people.
