To carry out the work, the City Council will enable the Uno Outdoor, which won the race, and for 12 years that will ensure the maintenance of the monuments, the installation of advertising space, to be installed at the cost and care of the sponsor”. The fountain of “artichoke”, which owes its name to the particular shape of the flowers from which the water flows, is present in Piazza Trieste e Trento 50s.
