Tourists persist in calling pot-bellied babies angels, although the sculptor Giovanni Antonio Cybei piled cupids in 1765, so the fountain is called "The fountain of cupids". Times were freedom-loving even in stagnant Italy and angels were no longer in fashion. Now the fountain is used as a popular angle for photographing Torre pendente, but can be used for its intended purpose as a fountain.

The Fountain with Angels is located toward the rear of the Piazza dei Miracoli and not far from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This beautiful piece of marble art dates to the 17th century. Originally this fountain was a source of water for Pisan citizens. In 18th century, the simple fountain was rebuilt and adorned with a marble Baroque sculpture of three angels sculpted by Flaminio Vacca. When visiting the Square of Miracles take a moment to admire this sculpture.

We were walking in the Piazza dei Miracoli looking for the street we entered on, when we saw this little "Fountain of Angels" with angels at the top and children on the bottom. The fountain doesn't seem to function as a water source any more but its worth a look if you're passing by.

Fontana dei Putti or Fountain of Angels is located on the Square of Miracoli. The marble fountain designed by Guivabu in the 17th Century had been fully functional to provide fresh water to the local citizens. However, it has been over-shadowed by the surrounding structures.
