Content: The Trevi Fountain ( Fontana di Trevi ) is the largest and one of the most famous fountains in Rome . Made between 1732 and 1762, it is located in the rione of Trevi , in Piazza di Trevi, and backs onto Palazzo Poli . While it is estimated that 80 million liters of water flow through the fountain each day, each year it brings in the sum of one million euros into the public coffers. The money generated has so far been used for charitable purposes, for the benefit of organizations such as Carritas or for the conservation of monuments. The legends surrounding the Fountain of Wishes are yet another reason for tourists to throw one, two or three coins inside. ▪️How many coins should be thrown into the fountain? If you throw a coin in the fountain, it means that you will return to Rome one day. Throw two, and you'll fall in love with an Italian or an Italian. There is also another belief that you would have to toss two coins when making a wish for it to be granted. If one is ready to sacrifice a third piece, legend says that one must be prepared to hear the wedding bells ringing, and this to celebrate your union with the Italian or the Italian mentioned above. A marriage supposed to occur during the year! As some tourist guides like to point out, it is important not to throw a fourth coin into the fountain. Indeed, it would be the omen of a divorce with the person in question.
