One of Italy's greatest splendors is gracing its beauty once again, after it was kept hidden under scaffolding for several months.
Rome's iconic Trevi Fountain revealed its emerald waters to the public on Tuesday, after spending 17 months under reconstruction, which cost around 2.2 million euros ($2.4 million).
The project was sponsored by Rome-based fashion house, Fendi, who announced their involvement in the restoration in January 2013. The restoration is part of its "Fendi for Fountains" project, which hopes to preserve parts of Rome's culture.
A famous tradition of the Fountain is for people to toss a coin over their shoulder into the Trevi's waters, which—legend has it—ensures a return to the city for visitors.
