Abundance Fountains (Fonti dell’Abbondanza)   Arte Massa Marittima
Albero delle Fonti dell'abbondanza Built in 1265, they were given this name not because of an abundance of water but because on the top floor there were the grain storehouses where each farmer had to bring a small part of his crop to be used in case of famine. Recently a fresco has been brought to light there and restored. It shows a tree whose fruits are shaped as genital male organs. It is a symbol of the fertility of the fields and of good luck.
