The Bella Fontana is one of the most important monuments in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg, Germany. It stands as a 19 meter high Gothic spire on the central Main Market Square (Hauptmarkt) and is one of the most beautiful fountains in Europe. The Fountain Fountain was built between 1385 and 1396 by the local sculptor Heinrich Beheim, although according to other sources seems to be the work of the brothers Georg and Fritz Rupprecht in collaboration with Sebald Schonhofer. Throughout history, the fountain has been restored several times, the first of which in 1822-24 by the sculptor Jacob Daniel Burgschmiet, and subsequently rebuilt. Today on the Hauptmarkt is a limestone copy made in 1903 and installed in 1912. The authentic remains, restored between 1899 and 1903 by Heinrich Walraff, are kept in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the German National Museum. In the Second World War the fountain was wrapped in a concrete wrap that kept it from the bombing. The Bella Fountain rises in the agile shape of a perforated gothic spire, divided into four levels and 19 meters high. Made of painted limestone, it is populated by a forest of about forty colorful statues representing the World Vision of the Holy Roman Empire. From the bottom one can recognize the philosophers, the seven liberal arts, the four Evangelists and the four Fathers of the Church, the seven Principals electors and the Nine Prodi, Moses and seven Prophets (Hosea, Daniel, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, Isaiah and Joel A complex wrought iron enclosure closes the structure: there are eight beautiful forged grilles in Augusta by Paul Kühn in 1587. Two brass grilles on the southwest side are two brass rings: a tradition wants to make them turn around themselves luck.
