In ancient times, water was collected in a “lova or lora” (a collection tank, from which this fountain takes its name) from a wellspring positioned at the side of the road, and fed into the wash area through a narrow tunnel surmounted by a series of massive boulders shaped into perfect squared stones with exquisite workmanship.

Buried in the 1960s for the construction of a parking area in front of the old school of Pozzolo, the ancient fountain remains in the memory of many people who have used it in the past to wash clothes even after the arrival of the aqueduct.

The fountain was rebuilt using traditional local materials in 2013 according to the original dimensions and elements.
