Pretoria Fountain – The Fountain of Shame

0
The splendid Pretoria or Della Vergogna fountain is so called by the inhabitants of Palermo because of the fact that all the statues are depicted naked. This enchanting square has long been considered by the city's inhabitants to be a symbol of corruption and malpractice, so much so that it is said that it was even the cloistered nuns of the convent in front of it who caused damage to the statues by depriving them of their genitals, which were considered unseemly.
