Good morning to all the readers of This is my participation in the contest made by @lira In the slogan "Monuments and sources in the city" For more information **enter here**

I want to start by thanking @lira, juries and sponsors for appreciating and rewarding my work. This third prize is very important to me. Beyond the economic, it is a huge motivation and a great commitment at the same time, to give and contribute the best of me in every post I publish. This image corresponds to the fountain of the promenade Italy a beautiful boulevard of the earth without evil.

In ancient times the fountains fulfilled the important mission of supplying water to citizens, they were located in strategic places, they used water to drink and give drink to animals, depending on the quality of the source or the place where they were located, the citizens used it as a social place or popular meetings.

It is estimated that the first fountain was carved in stones in the town of "Babilonia" and dates from 300 years before Christ, the other dates from the middle of the fourth century also before Christ, in this fountain you can see a lady of time next to a "fountain pylon", a column supports what would be a plate

However, it was the Islamic cultures who promoted the use of the fountains as an architectural artefact, incorporating into their constructions "private buildings and public areas, such as palaces, courtyards, gardens, squares and mosques" an element with two purposes, decorating and air conditioning the environment. Nowadays the fountains have taken an extraordinary turn, they have become water screens, used in important events, as a support for videos or laser flashes, something very modern and revolutionary
