ROME: Trevi Fountain to receive 1 million euro makeover

Nov 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Italian News

trevi

Trevi Fountain…..the world’s favourite romantic fountain and who has not thrown a coin into the fountain in hoping to return to the eternal city?

Now Trevi Fountain  is to receive a 1-million-euro makeover: the statues will be cleaned, there will be new lighting and streets in the surrounding area will be widened. The fountain, built between 1732 and 1762, was last restored in 1998.

The nearby Piazza San Silvestro will be pedestrianised and two new pavements will be built there. The piazza will also be revitalised with new lighting and plants. Work will begin on the project after consultation with residents and shopkeepers in the area.
