What people say

"Vuoi esprimere un desiderio? A Roma non serve strofinare una lampada, basta andare a vedere uno dei suoi monumenti più belli ossia la Fontana di Trevi. Si dice che se ci lanci una monetina ed esprimi il desiderio di tornare a Roma questo si avvera, io per non sapere ne leggere ne scrivere ho chiesto anche ricchezza e benessere ...E) Questa famosissima leggenda nasce nel 1954 con il film " Tre soldi nella fontana di Trevi". Ogni anno questa tradizione frutta al Comune di Roma circa un milione di euro che poi vengono dati in beneficenza. Il valore economico della Fontana era già noto anche al grande Totò che in "Totò truffa 62" si finge il Cavaliere Ufficiale Antonio Trevi, erede della Famiglia Trevi proprietaria della Fontana da generazioni, pur di raggirare un povero ingenuo ricco americano ) genio incontrastato Se invece siete in cerca dell'amore bevete l'acqua dalla Fonte degli Innamorati, la troverete sul lato destro guardando la statua del Dio Oceano, avete visto mai che si esaudisca anche questo di desiderio? G Questa straordinaria opera d'arte è molto più che una scultura: è il trionfo dell'estetica barocca che si incarna nelle forme naturali e celebra il meraviglioso e mutevole mondo dell'acqua. Un gioiello di pietra la cui presenza si avverte già percorrendo i vicoli vicini. Non è difficile infatti camminando per le viuzze attigue, la mattina presto o a tarda sera quando il vociare dei turisti non c'è sentire lo scrosciare dell'acqua avvicinandovisi, l'audio del mio video ne e' la riprova. Per finire questo breve racconto della Fontana di Trevi non si può non citare il film di Fellini "La dolce vita" in cui proprio nella fontana si gira la scena più famosa... "Marcello come here!" ❤️"
"The Trevi Fountain is a famous Baroque fountain located in the heart of Rome, Italy. It is the largest and most famous fountain in Rome, and one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. The fountain was designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi in the 18th century and was completed by Giuseppe Pannini after Salvi's death. The Trevi Fountain is located at the junction of three roads, or "tre vie," which gives the fountain its name. It features a grand, theatrical design with a central figure of Neptune, the Roman god of the sea, riding a chariot pulled by two sea horses. The fountain is adorned with sculptures of other sea creatures, including tritons and sea nymphs. According to legend, tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain ensures that you will return to Rome someday. This tradition has become very popular among tourists, and an estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day. The money is collected and donated to a charity that helps the poor in Rome."
"The Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi in Italian) is a magnificent 18th-century fountain in the Trevi district of Rome, Italy, designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762 . It is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. It is tradition to toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure a return visit to Rome. Legend has it that if you toss a coin over your right shoulder with your back to the fountain, you will be guaranteed to return to Rome someday. The fountain is built on the site of the Aqua Virgo, an ancient Roman aqueduct. More than 2,300 euros are thrown into the Trevi Fountain every day. This money is collected by a charity every night and used to help the underprivileged in Rome. The Trevi Fountain has been featured in many films, including La Dolce Vita, Three Coins in the Fountain, and Roman Holiday."
