To be specific, the Trevi Fountain was designed in 1731 by architect Nicola Salvi and commissioned by Pope Clementino XIII. Its construction started in 1732, under the supervision of Salvi himself, and ended in 1762 with the architect Giuseppe Pannini.
The “Fontanone”, the nickname given to it by the inhabitants of Rome, is next to Palazzo Poli and was built with travertine, marble, plaster, stucco and metals. Its history is closely linked to the aqueduct of the Virgin Water, one of the most important aquifers of imperial Rome, built at the time of Emperor Augustus, which led water resources to the central area of Campo Marzio.

The central theme of the fountain is the sea. The water gushes from several points and in the central niche we can admire the statue representing the god Oceano: the divinity of all the waters according to ancient Greeks.
There are many traditions associated with the Trevi Fountain, since it is one of the best known symbols of the city of Rome. For example there’s a long-standing tradition about throwing coins in the Trevi Fountain. The original legend says that if you throw a coin into the Trevi – with your back to the fountain, throwing the coin with your right hand over your left shoulder, keeping your eyes closed – that will ensure a return to Rome.
