After the redesign of the Königsplatz area as part of the “projekt augsburg city”, the 2.2 m tall bronze female statue by the Italian sculptor Giacomo Manzù (1908 – 1991) was moved a few meters north of its original location. It was then placed in a new water basin, level with the ground, and rebuilt with new water technology.
In addition, a 16.5 m long seating bench made from Fuerstenstein diorite (in five parts, each element is 3.3 m long) with LED lighting in the base, was also delivered.
The Manzù fountain was originally donated by the IHK Schwaben and many other companies from Augsburg for the city’s 2000-year anniversary, and was unveiled in 1985. It is a popular meeting point on the Königsplatz.
When it comes to fountain systems, Gert Fraunberger is your man. He will be able to give a quick answer to virtually any questions you might have on the subject of water and stone. The best idea is to get in touch with him right away.
