The history of the Fountain itself is quite ordinary - in the 18th century, an architect named Nicola Salvi built a fountain near the palace of the well-known family by the remote part of Rome. However, later the capital of Italy began to expand, the di Trevi area became the center of the metropolis, and the place at the fountain began to be one of the most visited tourist attractions of the Eternal City.

All travelers who come to Rome throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain: one – for returning to the Eternal City, two – for meeting love, three – to get married, and four – to become rich. By the way, an interesting fact - every evening after cleaning the fountain, the city's communal service collects all coins by the amount for about €3000.
