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.
Will do Francesca!
Such wonderful antiquities! Really like the connections to the seasons. Hope you are enjoying Palermo. How is the traffic today?
