Unfortunately the fountain is restored at the moment. Therefore it is completely covered and can not be visited.

This is one of my favorite sites in Bologna. Right now it's covered for restoration and I look forward to seeing it look all new in the future.

You can see the original statue in the city museum but the fountain itself is boarded up at the moment (Feb 2017).

I saw the statue first some 20 years ago and remember the beauty and strength. Now it is invisible: it's being restored under a gigantic tent. Check out status of restoration before you make the trip.

The Fontana was on our top 5 things to do list but unfortunately it was closed and covered for restoration and whilst such works have to be done; meaning a few will miss out, it left the square soleless.

I tried to see the statue in January 2017 and it was closed for refurbishment. It its totally surrounded by boards so there is no chance to see it. I of course understand that it is required to preserve the statue, but please don't go to Bologna expecting to see it any time soon, it is undergoing huge restoration works.

Ok, it was closed. Will be for several months if not years. That means you cannot view the fountain in action as of January 2017. The good news is you can still visit the renovation site by buying a guided tour tickets from the Bologna tourist office just a stone throw. 5 euros later a lovely guide showed up and... More
