Todays Featured Poster • The Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain, an 18th-century fountain in Rome, Italy is on almost every Rome “must see” list. Designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini it stands an impressive 75 feet high and 150 feet wide, and is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world.

Back in the fifties a popular movie came out called Three Coins In The Fountain. It was about three American roommates working in Italy who made wishes to meet the man of their dreams by throwing coins into Trevi Fountain. Before that movie it wasn’t a practice to throw coins in Trevi and over the years that movie scene has morphed into a tradition. Now it’s throwing a coin over your right shoulder into Trevi Fountain to guarantee that you’ll return to Rome.

In the mid sixties Trevi Fountain again became the center of attention when Federico Fellini’s movie La Dolce Vita staring Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg was released. Trevi Fountain is the night scene of Anita Ekberg in a strapless black dress dancing and wading through the fountain.
