Description

The Trevi Fountain was finished in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini, who substituted the present allegories for planned sculptures of Agrippa and "Trivia", the Roman virgin.

Its origins go back to Roman times and it was the terminal point of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct commissioned by Augustus, which was used to provide water for the thermal baths.

It is said that if you throw a coin over your shoulder into the water, you will be sure to return to Rome.

The convoluted but interesting history of the fountain is well done at the following link:

The fountain was refurbished in 1998; the stonework was scrubbed and the fountain provided with recirculating pumps.

TECHNICAL

Not enough experience shooting at night with autofocus. The AF did not have time to fully settle in some of the frames.
