Trevi Fountain restoration is half way to be completed

Restoration should be completed by end of October

After one year since the start of the restoration, the Fontana di Trevi in Rome has been partly unveiled. The works have been funded by Fendi Maison and have got a high speed in the last weeks. The restoration should be completed by October. 

The fountain was commissioned by Pope Clement XII in 1732 and was immortalised in the scene from the Fellini film in which Anita Ekberg waded into its waters in a black evening dress. According to tradition, tossing a coin into the fountain ensures that a visitor will return to Rome.
