Trevi restored, thanks to the Fendi fashion house

If this seems like a plug for Fendi then so be it. The Italian leather and clothing fashion house spent $2.2 million dollars to pay for the restoration of Rome’s magnificent baroque Trevi Fountain.

Restoration work began in June, 2014 and was concluded three days ago on November 3, when water from the  ancient Aqua Virgo  acqueduct once more surged into the fountain’s huge marble basin. The Fendi initiative is one of several restoration financed by Italian fashion giants.  Internationally famous she producer,  Tod’s,  is funding the restoration of the  Roman Colosseumwhile in Florence, another leather leader, Ferragamo,  recently donated €600,000 towards the restoration of the Uffizi Gallery.
