One of the symbols of Rome, the 18th-century Trevi Fountain, the successful
combination of classicism and Baroque, designed by Nicolò
Salvi, has recently returned to its original splendor after a
restoration operation that lasted a number of years.
The fountain is set against Palazzo Poli, which is to become the National
Museum of Engraving and Printing Instruments.
Legend has it that if a tourist, with his back to the
fountain, tosses a coin over his shoulder into its water,
he will surely return to visit the Eternal City.
