Lavatoio – The Ancient Washhouse

A long tank of white marble divided into different parts, covered by an elegant roof made of cast iron and metal slabs.

Built in 1881, the Washhouse (“Lavatoio” in Italian) via San Lupo, in the Upper Town, represents a beautiful model from the design point of view.

It’s provided with a water adduction system, an overflow drain system, a process of dirty water discharge after washing and a gutter of the water sprays produced during the washing: this makes it extremely effective and functional.
