The Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi in Italian) is the largest (about 40 m. From the front) and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome (Italy). Under current administrative division of the center of Rome, is located in the rione Fountain. The source is located at the junction of three roads (tre vie), marking the end point of the Aqua Virgo (Italian Acqua Vergine), one of the ancient aqueducts that supplied water to Rome. With the alleged help of a virgin, Roman technicians located a source of pure water at only 22 km from the city (current scene on the facade of the source). This Aqua Virgo aqueduct ran along the shortest of Rome directly to the Baths of Agrippa and was used for more than four years. The coup de grace to the urban life of late classical Rome was rupture of the aqueduct by the besiegers Goths. Medieval Romans were reduced to drawing water from contaminated wells and the Tiber River, which was also used as a sewer. The Roman custom of building a handsome fountain at the end of the aqueducts that brought water to Rome was revived in the fifteenth century with the Renaissance. In 1453, Pope Nicholas V finished mending the Aqua Virgo aqueduct and built a simple basin, designed by the humanist architect Leon Battista Alberti, to herald the arrival of the water.
