Irpinia is a region of the Apennine Mountains around Avellino, a town in Campania, South Italy about 40 km east of Naples. Ospedaletto d’Alpinolo lies at the foot of the Montevergine, dominating the city of Avellino. The ‘Fontana del Tritone’ is the monument symbol, it’s situated in Demanio square and has been built at the beginning of the 900’s by local stone-cutters.
