Trevi Fountain


It may or may not be the most beautiful fountain in Rome, but it is without a doubt the most famous. The imaginative concept, the theatrical composition, the sober and imposing beauty of the structured marble figures make it a true masterpiece both of sculpture and of architecture. Pietro da Cortona and above all Bernini, who began the undertaking, both had a hand in the project. The death of Pope Urban VIII brought work to a standstill and it was not until about a hundred years later that Clement XII entrusted the work to Nicola Salvi, who finished the undertaking between 1732 and 1751.
