THE LITTLE WIDOW

Ask a real milanese citizen where is THE LITTLE WIDOW and it can tell you the right way,ask where is the small fountain ad it say i dont know.This fountain is called in that way because the continuous water flow is as the widow crying since their isnstallation.There are more than 400 hundred in the city from the centre to the most remote part of the municipality,all of them are officially painted in a "green lizard" colour and made by cast iron,except the one from PIAZZA DELLA SCALA(the first to be placed in 1931).The water exit part have a dragon head shape.That's why when you're invited to drink something to the Green Dragon Pub somebody is kidding you.The city crest is present in the front part.
