Water Clock at Leggiana

 

 

On the street near the church at Leggiana, you can see a water clock. The water, coming from the house in front, activates the mechanism.

The clock has been restored in 2002. We find a similar watch in Rome at Villa Borghese , near the Pincio terrace. On the watch there is written:

 

”The person who is looking at the clock, does not realise that death is near”

 

And under this sentence there is written:

 

“The water activates my mechanism to give pleasure to the people passing by”
