Traffic Circle Statue
Left: The square's charming ornamental column, dates from 1750.
Its construction was made possible thanks to a collection of funds from the people, organised by the Jesuit father Francesco Pepe.
At the top stands a statue in gilded copper of the Immacolata (Blessed Virgin), dating from 1753.
Every year on 8th December, the feast of the "Immacolata", firemen place a wreath of flowers at the statue's feet, at the top of the column.
Our next port-of-call will be the Isle of Capri, just across the Bay Of Naples.
