Photographer's Note

This is a different view of the Piazza of Trevi in Rome where the very famous Fountain is. In this case the 'stars' are not the statues or the fountain itself, the real 'star' of the picture is the people, the not very big piazza packed with people visiting one of the most beautiful fountains of the world. It is a diferent view of this worldwide known monument but not so very known place where the fountain is.
The fountain was built by the architect Salvi (1735) in the time of Clement XII, and decorated by several artists of Bernini's school. It is the front of a large palace (Palazzo Poli) decorated with statues and bas-reliefs on heaps of rocks.
The fountain is not only celebrated for its excellent water but for the legend that whoever drinks it or throws a coin in the fountain, will assure his return to Rome.
The fountain is so big that it occupies a big part of the square.

The warm colors are emphasized in order to stress a lovely atmosphere.

I hope you like it.
