Going to Rome???!! You must visit the Trevi Fountain

    One of the most beautiful fountains of Rome, symbol of power and richness, it  was designed by Nicola Salvi in 1732 and completed in 1762. 



    In 1629, Pope Urban VIII, asked Bernini to sketch possible renovations of the fountain, finding it insufficiently theatrical. After the Pope's death the project was abandoned. Bernini's lasting contribution was to situate the fountain from the other side of the square to face the Quirinal Palace (so that the Pope could see and enjoy it).
