The Murat Fountain

The circular fountain was commissioned and built in approximately 1810 to 1812 by Joachim Murat who reigned as the Napoleonic King of Naples from 1808 to 1815. Murat was the brother-in-law of Napoleon. The fountain was originally sited in Piazza Annunziata. It is said that the noise of the local people of Itri, who gathered there to fill their earthenware containers with water, disturbed the services being held in the church. Consequently the fountain was repositioned in Piazza Armando Diaz, where it is currently located. The fountain was badly damaged during the bombing of the Second World War.
