Very unusual 13th century fresco which is called the "Tree of Fertility" for obvious reasons on close examination.
Jun 2019
Beneath the Palazzo dell'Abbondanza, which used to be used as a granary for Massa Marittima, are the vaults of a very large public fountain which dates from the 1265. The fountain is located in Via Ximenes, a short way down the hill away from the Duomo and towards one of the paid car parks. The facade of the fountain has three large archways which also separate the three different water basins that were being used - the first for drinking water, the second for domestic activities and the third for livestock.

In the years just prior to 2000, the city restored the natural spring waters such that water again flowed into the fountain and during this process discovered against the wall at the back of the basin used for drinking water, a very large (measuring five metres by six metres) and unusual 13th century fresco which is called the "Albero della Fecondita" or the "Tree of Fertility". The fresco shows 25 sets of male genitalia hanging like large pieces of fruit amongst the leaves on the branches of a tree. There is also four large blue birds just above the heads of a colourfully dressed group of women who appear to be waiting underneath the branches of the tree to catch any falling genitalia and place them in the bag they are carrying.

Very unusual and there appears to be no one version of what the fresco might mean.

Funny tree in the old town of Massa Marittima. Also the description sign is funny because they do not use the word ’penis’

Fascinating fresco on old civic building
Jul 2018 • Teman
OK - this one is a bit odd, especially as a decoration on an old civic building in a Medieval Italian hill town. Clearly about 'fertility' at some level. A good photo to pass onto (adult) friends....

A unique fresca of the tree with "piselli"
Jul 2017 • Pasangan
Having a walk across Massa Marittima you may find some strange souvenirs and cards with the tree, on which penises grow. The original fresca with this tree was discovered in the year 2000 during the restauration the old fountain, known as "Fonte nuovo" since 1265. It was hidden under the layers of plastering. In total, there are 25 erected falos on the tree, 5 black birds, 2 women are fighting for "fruits", another one is really satisfied with the "proper" usage of the "fruit". There are many other intresting details but better come and see it yourself.

This is a really unique fresco. You don't see anything special at first but if you take a closer look at the "fruits" and find out what it is about it will definitely put a smile on your face :)

Original was good - restoration is like a cartoon!
Okt 2016 • Pasangan
When this was first discovered and uncovered a few years ago - this fresco was subtle and surprising! The recent 'restoration' has ruined it - makes it look like a cartoon! Worth a look whilst in Massa but now bears little semblance to the original - which is a shame!

Am amazing sight

This is a fresco that one needs to see! I won't go into any details, but when in the area, make a trip to Massa Marittima. The fresco is especially lovely at night when it's lit and there is the sound and reflection of water (which doesn't exist).

Fun to send pictures back home of this!

Well, it IS called the Fountain of Abundance! It is in a location that is hard to miss as you walk around Massa Maritimma. In fact, our host for the hotel we were staying in, Enrico Franco, told us this location saved Massa Marittima because of the natural spring that was once here, and a storehouse of food, during the frequent wars between ancient Italian cities, as he carried our luggage for us from the city parking lot.

When you first look at this medieval fresco, it looks very quaint, but then looking at it closer, you can see what was on their mind. Fertility. Worth a look

Is it art or is it pornography?
Nov 2014 • Pasangan
The above age-old question is amusingly placed in a medieval context by the wonderful fresco of the Fountain of Abundance, which features a Tree of Fertility whose fruit consists of many pendulous penises and scrotums. Apparently this marvel of medieval artistic licence was hidden for centuries and only recently discovered under layers of coating.

Our relatives in the town chuckle at having Italy's finest 14C fresco porn. Sure, it hasn't changed the course of Western civilization the way that Giotto or Fra Angelico probably did, but it is a unique window on the late medieval world.
