A pozzo is much like our vision of a 'wishing well' sitting in a piazzetta or campo. Porous paving stones in the campo allowed rainwater to drain down into a sand filled reservoir where water was stored and then wirthdrawn through the pozzo. Today, the pozzi have been abandoned, as water is piped directly from the mountains of northern Italy.
