the square is to be demolished because it’s on a very steep hill and “is in a very bad state in terms of ‘urban furniture’, flooring, vegetation and accessibility.” Thus, says the release, it will now be furnished with “new cobbled flooring, drinking water and facilities for drainage, electric and telephone cables.”
And, yes, it will have a fountain! This time, though, the old mill stones that used to decorate a long-gone fountain, will be used in the new one.
