The Fontana di Trevi or Trevi Fountain is the most famous and arguably the most beautiful fountain in all of Rome. The fountain at the junction of three roads marks the terminal point of the modern Aqua Vergine, the same ancient Aqua Virgo, an aqueduct that supplied water to ancient Rome.
In 1732, Pope Clement XII commissioned Nicola Salvi to create a large fountain at the Trevi Square.
A previous undertaking to build the fountain after a design by Bernini was halted a century earlier after the death of Pope Urban VIII. Construction of the monumental baroque fountain was finally completed in 1762.
The central figure of the fountain, in front of a large niche, is Neptune, god of the sea.
