The fountain

The Fountain of the Rosello is the most famous fountain of Sassari and Sardinia for which it is a symbol. It is located at the end of the Rosello valley next to the ancient town of the city.

History

It was built among 1603 and 1606 by Genoese craftsmen on the site of a preexisting source along the valley. To bring the water from the Rosello to the houses was a team of 300 water carrier that filled their barrels that loaded on the pack saddle of their donkeys.

The fountain was also used by the housekeepers to make the laundry of garments and laundry. In the 1849 John Warre Tyndale, an English man that had sojourned to Sassari for a few times, wrote: "This system of provisioning is inconvenient, because it often happens you to find the entry of a sassarese's house stopped by a man, a beast and a barrel".
