Fountain Series: Stately – Trevi Fountain, Rome

To the archives for this and next weeks’ stately/ornate fountains. This is just part of the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Technically a Baroque fountain, I’m wickedly passing it off as stately — it is certainly ornate! According to Wikipedia, “The Trevi Fountain was finished in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini … The majority of the piece is made from Travertine stone … An estimated 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day [!]”.
