Not far from "via del Corso" erected in the homonym square, it is probably one of the most visited places in Rome. Thousands of people every day come to admire it and throw a coininto it, because, according to a legend, the one who tosses a coin into the fountain ensures his return to Rome. The movie "La Dolce Vita", directed by Federico Fellini has contributed to enrich the world fame of this fountain.
It is divided into three niches by four columns. It tells several allegoric stories. In the central niche, the statue of the Ocean God stands on a shell-shaped chariot pulled by winged horses. In the side niches there are statues symbolizing Plenty and Sobriety. In the basin, which represents the sea, various animals, both mythological and real, are represented.
