Little Roman fountain

"Street photo" taken last July in the Roman ghetto. It was a real warm summer day. Here you can see the typical public drinking water fountain of Rome named "Nasone" (Big Nose, in English) because of the long nose spout. It's a popular roman drinking fountain for free and good water to people passing along the city alleyways. The name "Nasone" (Big Nose) comes from the typical curved iron tap whose shape remember the idea of a big nose. The first example was installed in 1874 and, now, in all Rome there are about 2.000 and also 378 more behind the city walls.
