The so-called Marzocco fountain is a marble structure that’s finely decorated with bas-relief works. It is called ‘Marzocco’ because it’s decorated with the Florentine lion. The fountain was originally located in the central square. In the nineteenth century, it was transferred to its current position next to the uphill road leading to the Rocca fort. There, you’ll find a marble plaque that commemorates Florence’s domination of Pietrasanta in the sixteenth century.
