it is complicated. Last time when most drinking fountains in Rome were shut
down was about 2 years ago in a dry period in the summer (as a side note
and very unfortunately, some mappers have deleted the whole thing in this
time just because the (internal) tap was closed for some weeks). So the
reason for seasonal availability could be various, from shutting them in
winter for frost protection to shutting them in the summer for saving
resources in a drought.
