Pilasters in Villa Fontana


The two small pilasters are located in the hamlet of Villa Fontana at the beginning of Via Pilastrino which takes its name from them.

They probably date back to the 19th century and are an example of popular architecture.

They are covered by a sandstone cap surmounted by a cross and contain an image of Our Virgin Lady of St. Lucas, made of Romagna's ceramics.

The two pilasters bear witness to the local religiousness. 


Address: Via Pilastrino - 40059 Medicina (BO)
