The Trevi Fountain (La Fontana di Trevi)
About Trevi Fountain (La Fontana di Trevi)
The Trevi Fountain is one of the most beautiful things to see in the center of Roma. With its 26 meters (85.3 feet) high and 20 meters (65.6 feet) wide Trevi Fountain it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. It is a spectacular place to see both during the day and during the night.
The Roman custom of building a handsome fountain at the endpoint of an aqueduct that brought water to Rome was revived in the 15th century, with the Renaissance. In 1453 Pope Nicholas V finished mending the Acqua Vergine aqueduct and built a simple basin, designed by the humanist architect Leon Battista Alberti, to herald the water's arrival.
In 1629 Pope Urban VIII finding the earlier fountain insufficiently dramatic, asked Gian Lorenzo Bernini to sketch possible renovations, but when the Pope died, the project was abandoned. Though Bernini's project was torn down for Salvi's fountain, there are many Bernini touches in the fountain as it was built.
