Mongalli palace fountain
Palazzo Mongalli, formerly Fraticelli, dates back to the 16th century. The remarkable construction is characterized by stone windows and stringcourses and by a very articulated plan. On the sides of the portal, divided by two half columns in terracotta, there are two stone seats provided "for the people", a unique example of this type in Spoleto; other seats, of different make, are located on the sides of the portal of the former Church of San Nicolò.
On the wall of the inner courtyard, ignored by Spoleto themselves, you can admire an imposing seventeenth-century font with three basins, with the coat of arms of the Sansi family above it. The water came out of two cannulas camouflaged inside the fake spongy rock.
