Trevi fountain

One of the most famous and beautiful fountains in the world.

The fountain, in Rococo style, represents Ocean (Greek mythological figure) on a shell-shaped chariot drawn by two horses winged, one upset and one placid as can be the sea at different moments.
In the niches next to Ocean we find on the left the statue of Abundance and on the right Salubrity.
In the bas-reliefs above the statues there is on the left Agrippa approving the construction of the Virgin aqueduct (the aqueduct inaugurated on 19 BC which still supplies the fountain) and on the right the girl who, according to tradition, would have indicated to the soldiers the whereabouts of the headwaters.
