Glowing and Flowing: Trevi Fountain Reopens After Restoration

The Trevi Fountain is shining and flowing again – the 17-month restoration work, financed by fashion house Fendi for a total of 2.2 million euros, concluded successfully last week.

Tourists still had access to the dry fountain during the restoration, thanks to a temporary bridge that gave them a close-up view of the historic fountain, a jewel of late Baroque architecture and a symbol of “la dolce vita”.

In its most thorough restyling since it was completed in 1762, the Trevi Fountain has been cleaned, and now boasts fresh pumps, a pigeon deterrent system, and a new high-tech lighting system, featuring 100 LED lights to improve its nighttime illumination.
