- Small Onofrio Fountain
Small Onofrio Fountain
Just like the Great Onofrio Fountain, this one was also created by Onofrio della Cava in 1438 in cooperation with the Italian sculptor Pietro di Martino. It is located in the eastern part of Stradun. The Renaissance worldview is expressed in the reliefs of naked boys on the octagonal sides of the pool, the kneeling boys who collect water on the column, the dolphins with shells and mascarones. Nowadays, the fountain is used in the carnival game “Novela od Stanaca” by Marin Držić, Dubrovnik’s famous playwright.
