The area
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

The fountain is located on the approach to the main entrance of Milan Castle, Castello Sforzesco. To be honest, I barely noticed it in passing as my eyes were set on the castle behind. It is however an attractive fountain and a photo opportunity.

Beautiful fountain just in front the Castle, the first construction was made for the visit of Mussolini in 1936 , and immediately called wedding cake for its shape.
It was dismantled for metropolitan construction and forgotten for several years in warehouses until 1999 when it was finally repositioned in its place

My wife and I visited that place in July 2019. It was a romantic place. It was very suitable for taking the photo. I recommend that place for all passengers to take photo.

The Fontana di Piazza Castello is a fountain in front of the south east entrance to Castello Sforzesco. The fountain has a large circular basin with a round, flat shape topped sculpture in the centre, shooting a fan-shaped jet that makes it look like a wedding cake.

A very popular fountain for photos for tourists and locals alike.

The main attraction is the castle, but you will be seeing this on your way. Not that special when comparing it with the other famous fountains around Italy.

Just nice for a quick break. Sit by the garden and people watch for a few minutes. The fountain itself is nothing out of the ordinary.

The fountain, if not outstanding, but beautiful. Of course, it is a matter of taste; some do, others do not like it. Milanese people call "tort de' spus”,- wedding cake, because of its shape. It is interesting to look at the dark walls of the castle through the spray and jets of water rising upwards. The fountain makes the otherwise gloomy look much more friendly. The fact that I am a fool of the waters influences my opinion presumably. As I walked around the fountain, looking for the best setting for a photo, I noticed different scenes. It was a sweltering day, and many tourists soaked their feet in the water. Unfortunately, sometimes I had the bad luck to see those feats before the owners immersed them into the fountain. With some malacia, I registered that some people wash their hands in the same water as others soak their dirty, sweaty hooves. The culmination was when they also washed their apples in the same place. Watching it was a bit disgusting entertainment.

I really can not say more than it is a nice fountain in front of Castello Sforzesco. You can not miss it if you visit the castle.
