On November 3 the Trevi Fountain comes back to its original splendour
following FENDI’s majestic restoration.Rome, November 3rd – After only 17 months since the beginning of the restauration works, and earlier than the scheduled date for the end of 2015, the water of the Trevi Fountain starts flowing back again thanks to the majestic restoration project financed by FENDI.
During the restoration, the panoramic boardwalk conceived and realized by the Sovrintendenza Capitolina, made of transparent panels and directly accessible from the square, has enabled the visitors to admire the Trevi Fountain from a unique perspective, to physically step into a world-class artistic masterpiece and get closer to it than ever before.
The renovation project, playing with creativity, has given life to one of the most innovative work-sites ever conceived before for this kind of operation, without interrupting the fruition of one of Rome’s most beautiful and visited monument.
“Giving back the Trevi Fountain in all its original splendor to the city of Rome, to the Romans and to the entire world is, once again, a valid example of the importance of a strong private-public synergy,” declared the Superintendent of Cultural Heritage for Rome, Claudio Parisi Presicce. “Such an important restoration couldn’t have been supported by the public administration without the significant contribution of FENDI, establishing a mutual, effective and original collaboration. A valuable partnership – concludes Presicce – that will be further consolidated and developed in 2016 with new and exciting initiatives”.
