The other day, Fausto http://alloggibarbaria.blogspot.com/ pointed out this “feature” on the wall of Campo San Sebastiano. I’d never given it more than a passing glance, it just looked like some sort of domestic project gone wrong.
But I was the one who was wrong. Fausto said there used to be a public urinal there, for the use of the men, of course!
You can make out where the water entered, where the plumbing was and the outline of the privacy enclosure, when you go to see this with your own eyes! The moss reminded me of the delightful book by Erma Bombeck “The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank.”
Thank you, Fausto, for giving me yet another piece of breaking news about your city!
