The Fountain of the Four Putti or Fawns was made in 1891 by sculptor Ernesto Biondi and is located in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele at the entrance to the village.

The fountain, which has been restored recently, represents a group of winged cherubs in bronze arranged in the central part of the fountain and having different expressions. The putti represent Montelanico and the neighboring towns of Gavignano, Segni and Carpineto Romano.

Originally the fountain was built by Biondi for the municipality of Morolo that refused it due to the political views of the artist. So the artist decided to donate it to the municipality of Montelanico.
