The Trevi Fountain is situated in the trevi district in Rome, Italy, it was built in 1762 and designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and was completed by Giuseppe Pannini. Trevi Fountain is the largest Baroque Fountain in Rome and one of the most famous Fountains in the World.

Throughout the years the fountain received a number of refurbishments once in 1988 and again in 1998 to remove the discolouration caused by smog and high skilled artisans repaired stoneworks and cracks, the fountain was equipped with recirculating pumps.
