THE CONE MONUMENT
E munumént dla pègna is known by the eldest local people as e funtanòn: from the mouth of its three mysterious masks, fresh water used to run from a water-bearing layer which, 30 years after its inauguration in 1874, dried up. Given its uselessness, the monument was taken down, removed and reconstructed in different parts of the town. Today, it has come back to its starting point: to the centre of the gardens of Piazza Monti, with a huge cone on the top, as an omen of wealth and happiness.
