Fontana Pretoria is a monumental fountain located in Piazza Pretoria in the heart of the historic centre of Palermo. It was built by Francesco Camilliani in the city of Florence in 1554, but was transferred in Palermo in 1574 where buildings were demolished to make room for the fountain. Between 18th century and 19th century, the fountain was considered a satirical commentary on the corrupt municipality of Palermo. For this reason and because of the nudity of the statues, the square became known as "Piazza della Vergogna" (Square of Shame). - Wikipedia.
