Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi in Italian language) is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome, Italy, designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci. It is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. Fontana di Trevi is made of travertine and Carrara marble. The fountain is about 85 feet high (26,30 m), 161 feet large (49,15 m). Every day it spills 2,824,800 cubic feet (80.000 cubic meter) of water. The fountain has appeared in several notable films, including Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita and is a popular tourist attraction.

Trevi Fountain is situated at the junction of three roads and marks the terminal point of one of the aqueducts that supplied water to ancient Rome.

Trevi Fountain was finished in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini, who substituted the present allegories for planned sculptures of Agrippa and “Trivia”, the Roman virgin. It remains one of the most historical cultural landmarks in Rome. A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. Coins are purportedly meant to be thrown using the right hand over the left shoulder. An estimated 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day.
