“The fountain of Aquila (eagle) contrada features Bruno Buraccini’s bronze sculpture of an eagle with wings partially extended and was inaugurated in 1965. It is located in a corner known as Quattro Cantoni where Via di Citta becomes Via di Stalloreggi, about 200 meters south of the Campo in Terzo di Città. Aquila’s saint day is the feast of the Nativity of Mary, celebrated on September 8.” (Siena's Contrada Fountains, La Bella Vita in Italia)
