Piazza del Municipio

Street and number Piazza del Municipio
City Tuoro sul Trasimeno
Country ITA

Tuoro’s central square is commonly referred to as Piazza del Municipio, Town Hall Square, being flanked by one of the two buildings occupied by the offices of the City Council.

The square’s focal point is a fountain, originally designed to be the end of the public aqueduct system. When inaugurated, the fountain was sculpted entirely in travertine marble. In later times, its lower level was replaced with the more traditional local stone, pietra serena.

The original wrought iron baluster was removed during World War II, when the inhabitants of Tuoro were required to turn over all available iron to supply the armament industry.
