The Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain is the largest and one of the most famous fountains in Rome; and then, one of the most famous fountains in the world. The fountain, designed by Nicola Salvi, lies on one side of Palazzo Poli (more properly Palazzo Conti di Poli), was begun by Nicola Salvi (the competition called by Pope Clement XII in 1731 was won by the French sculptor Lambert-Sigisbert Adam, but two versions exist: one says that the Pope did not want to entrust the work to a stranger, the other that Adam had to return to France: consult the article “Adam” on the encyclopedia Treccani or Caroline Brooks in Rome-Paris, Academy of San Luca, 2016, p. 40) in 1732 and completed in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini and belongs to the late Baroque. The fountain was built with travertine, marble, plaster, putty and metals.
