The Trevi Fountain is located in the homonymous square, on one of the sides of Palazzo Poli. Designed in 1732 by Nicola Salvi and completed in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini, the fountain is made of white marble and travertine in Baroque style. The monument is powered by one of the oldest Roman aqueducts, that of the “virgin water”. The theme of 'whole composition is the sea. At the center there is a large statue of the Ocean on a shell-shaped chariot drawn by sea horses led by tritons. To the sides, in two niches there are the statues of healthiness and abundance. The scenery is dominated by a rocky cliff that occupies the entire lower part of the building.
Rome - Trevi Fountain"La dolce vita" and another curiosity
The Fontanta is also the protagonist of one of the most famous scenes in film history: in "La dolce vita" by Federico Fellini, in 1960, Anita Ekberg dives into the fountain, inviting Marcello Mastroianni to do the same.
Another curiosity is the the throwing of a coin in the fountain, in order to ensure your return to the Eternal City. In 2007 the fountain was the victim of an act of vandalism in which its waters were dyed red. At first, it was feared that the dye could affect the marbles but fortunately the monument did not report any consequence.
