Trevi Fountain

To content

The Trevi Fountain is one of the most well-known and melodious places of interest in Rome. The fascinating sounding and beauty of this construction inspired the Italian composers to create their musical works.

Creation of the Trevi Fountain

The fountain was built by the architect Niccolò Salvi in 1762 under Pope Clement XII, and the erection was beautified with various sculptures of the Bernini school. The guests of the city and tourists, who had a possibility to watch and enjoy the fountain, express their admiration. The composition has quite impressive sizes – 20 meters wide and 26 meters high, it occupies almost the whole square where it is situated.

The Aqua Virgo

The water gets to the fountain from the pure springs located 13 km from Rome through the pipes that function from the 1st century B.C. The Trevi Fountain was erected in front of the magnificent Palazzo Poli. The grand façade of the palace and the gorgeous magnificence of the fountain, abutting to it closely, make an amazing view.

The composition is dedicated to the marine theme: a mythical hero in the image of Neptune in the chariot made in the form of a seashell harnessed with Hippocampi and Tritons. A central niche of the construction, behind the statue, makes an impression that the God of the seas entered through it. The ringing water streams are gracefully running over the rest sculptures and fall on the stones making a murmur of the sea. In the side niches, there are the allegorical figures, and above them, you can see the bas-reliefs.

One of them depicts a young woman showing the Rome soldiers on the spring, or rather the aqueduct, that is a supplier of the water for such a grand construction.

The God of the Seas Receives Gifts

Thousands of tourists visit the Piazza di Trevi every day to see this wonder of architecture and one of the most famous landmarks in Italy. Some simply enjoy the fountain and the taste of its pure spring water, but others believe in a legend, which says that throwing a coin into the fountain and wishing to come back to Rome again, the wish will come true for sure! Weekly cleaning of the fountain brings a sum that sometimes reaches 10-11 thousand dollars, which are given to charity.

Trevi Fountain

Once the composer Ottorino Respighi said that the fountains in Rome are its melodious voices but the Trevi Fountain is the peerless soloist of the capital.
