Autumn in Palermo

image

This statue that is at the center of Palermo’s intersection of Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Via Maqueda — know as Quattro Canti, or Four Corners — represents autumn or autunno. Quattro Canti is octagonal in shape, and it is flanked by four 18th century Baroque facades, each with a fountain and a series of statues. On the first level–the street level–are images representing the four seasons.

    Quattro Canti — I remember being there. Please take a photo of the Fountain of Shame. Love these little postcards.
