The 12 Months Fontain In Winter

The 12 the months fountain (Fontana Dei Dodici Mesi) is located in Valentino park.
The oval tub was designed in Valentino park by Carlo Ceppi at the National Exhibition of 1898 for the fiftieth anniversary of the Albertine Statute. The balustrade from which descends a foaming waterfall is decorated with statues of the Months and Rivers of Turin (Po, Stura, Dora and Sangone), the work of several sculptors including Edoardo Rubino, Louis Contracts, Joseph Cerini, Cesare Biscarra, Vittorio Bonino and Giacomo Cometti.
