fountain-trevi-rome.ni924bea48c2e5212733e9bf6d24d2ebd7_1Italian luxury fashion brand Fendi will toss way more than 3 coins at The Trevi Fountain when it underwrites a much-need $3.5million restoration of the baroque masterpiece.

The restoration of the fountain, completed in 1762, is due to take 20 months. Rome’s fountains “are there to glorify water, which is the most important thing in life,” Fendi’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld told a press conference.

The Trevi Fountain is the backdrop for one of the sexiest scenes in cinema from

Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini’s 1960 Masterpiece, ‘La Dolce Vita’, starring Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni.

The Fountain was last restored in 1989. Last summer parts of the stonework from the fountain’s façade started to crumble after being affected by winter weather.
