Fontana di Trevi sits at the terminating point of one of the aqueducts that supplied water to ancient Rome. It was constructed in 1762 and on it is depicted the event when Roman technicians, supposedly with the help of a virgin, located a pure water source only about 13 km from the city.

It was made world famous in the 1960 Federico Fellini movie La dolce Vita which starred Swedish actress Anita Ekberg and Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni.
