How much does the most famous fountain in the world “earn”

A video is gaining popularity on social networks in which Rome city services collect coins from the famous Trevi Fountain.

The Trevi Fountain, one of the most famous fountains in the world, is located in Rome, Italy. Its majestic architecture and impressive history have made it a significant symbol of the city and one of the main tourist attractions, attracting the attention of millions of tourists from all over the world.

The fountain was built in 1732-1762 according to the design of the architect Nicolo Salvi. It occupies a central position in the square (Piazza di Trevi), and its main decoration is a huge complex of statues depicting the ocean god Neptune, leading a chariot drawn by sea horses and tritons. The height of the fountain is 26 meters, and the width is more than 20 meters.

However, the Trevi Fountain is known not only for its beauty and history but also for one interesting tradition. According to legend, a coin thrown into the water over the left shoulder will bring good luck and ensure a return to the Eternal City. Many tourists follow this tradition and throw coins into the fountain to make a wish.

A user named JoMammaBaby on TikTok shared a video showing utility workers cleaning the fountain with subscribers. The video has been viewed more than 10 million times.

According to media reports, the Trevi Fountain is “one of the richest in the world”; an impressive amount of money is thrown there every day, but you can most often find data about 1500-3000 euros per day in the media. It is cleaned several times a week, and the work usually takes several hours. The money caught from the fountain goes to charity, for example, these funds finance soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and other projects.
