Things to know about Trevi Fountain
The Trevi Fountain is considered one of the greatest Baroque masterpieces in the world, as well as one of Rome's most beloved free attractions.
Designed by the Italian architect Nicola Salvi in 1732, the construction was completed only in 1762. The location of the monument marks the terminal of the "Acqua Virgine", an old Roman aqueduct working since the 15th century.
The Trevi Fountain dominates the small homonymous square with its impressive structure. The scene depicts a mythological composition of Oceanus, divine personification of all water, flanked by Tritons and sea-horses.
This world-famous fountain was the setting for a legendary scene in Fellini's "La Dolce Vita", where Anita Ekberg glides through the fountain's water. Actually, walking in the Trevi Fountain's basin is prohibited, but you can take part in the ritual coin toss, as the legend says that doing so it will assured you a return trip to Rome.
