ROME - TREVI FOUNTAIN IN ROME

 


FOUNTAIN OF TREVI  (FONTANA DI TREVI )
 
Trevi Fountain ( Fontana di Trevi) :The most important work of the late  Baroque in Rome. The architect, Nicola Salvi, who had won a public competition, was commissioned by Pope Clemente XII to build it.
The fountain was inaugurated in the first time in 1740 under the Pope Benedict XIV, and when it was finished in 1762 under Pope Clemente XIII.
It is oriented southwards so that the sun always illuminates it and it is feed by the old aqueduct of Acqua Vergine.
In the centre the figure of Neptune who advances on a chariot shaped like shell, drawn by two winged horses; nearby are tritons and on both sides the two female figures, symbol of plenty and health.
