In via Consolato del mare, in a square in front of the southern part of the Town Hall, we find the Senatoria fountain. The original part is located on three circular steps, inside a recently built concrete basin. It is a large marble cup, supported by a circular pedestal, which culminates in a pine cone. On the outer edges of the basin there are seven plaques, framed by refined shells, on which it is possible to read the name of the Senators who erected it in 1619: Don Franciscus Marullo, Bernardus Moleti, Thomas Zuccarato, Marcellus Cirino, Vincentius De Celis and Franciscus De Judice . The fountain stood in the square of the Royal Palace, in the area of the present customs office. In 1937, with the arrival of Benito Mussolini in the city, it was moved to its present site. In the background, the advanced exedra of the Town Hall and a bronze bust by the sculptor A. Bonfiglio depicting the mayor Antonio Martino (1900 - 1903).
