Trevi Fountain is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome. It designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci. Standing 26.3 metres high and 49.15 metres wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. Each day some €3000,00 are thrown into the fountain which the city uses to subsidize a supermarket for the Rome’s needy. In January 2013, it was announced that the Italian fashion company Fendi would sponsor a 20-month, 2.2-million-euro restoration of the fountain; it will be the most thorough restoration in the fountain’s history.
I was interested to see if if was still under renovations. We were there in Oct. 2012 and it was already there. Now I read your update here… What – Fendi didn’t approve of the renovations they did just prior to Jan 2013?? :p anyways, it’s not European and real if there isn’t scaffolding somewhere.
