The most famous fountain in the world?
Created by Nicola Salvi, it was ready in 1762. It’s situated on Piazza di Trevi. The building behind is the Palazzi Polo.
It’s meant to symbolize the taming of water.
If you want to make sure of your return to Rome, throw a coin in the fountain! You should throw it with your right hand over your left shoulder.
Of course Fontana di Trevi was part of one of the most famous film scenes – from Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, 1960, with Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni.
When Marecello Mastroianni died in 1996 the fountain was turned off and draped in black.
