If you ever travel to Rome, you will have to visit the Trevi fountain. This is where your breath gets taken away by the amazing architect. When I was there, I remember seeing beautiful monumental statues of Greek gods and goddesses, horses, and waterfalls dripping all over. I decided to follow a tradition where I took some coins and make a wish and turn around and throw it in the fountain. I don’t know if my wish came true, but it was fun doing that. I also noticed a lot of tourist throwing coins in there. It made me wonder where these coins would go. I look down in the fountain, and I would find not only just coins but dollar bills as well. I guess this would be a beggar‘s paradise where they can just swim in the water and gather the coins. Unfortunately, it’s illegal to take the coins from the fountain. However, little did we know that these coins all go towards donation. At the end of the day, people that work near the fountain will gather the coins and donate them to various charities and foundations.

This is a great thing to give back to the community. After all, the Trevi fountain is one of the 1,352 fountains in fourth-century Rome. It’s stood out from the rest of the statues and fountains. Such stunning appearance and performance do deserve a standing ovation. Better yet, its good fortune does require the responsibility of giving back to the community. This fountain has been through a lot, did you know that Fendi has spent $2.2 million to refurnished the fountain for a fashion house performance. That’s right, it’s even an icon in the fashion world. The fountain is a significant phenomenon in the film industry as well. Dolce also got his hands on this as a prop for his fashion clothing line. Don’t get me started with Hilary Duff and the Lizzie Mcquire movie that they have filmed.

This architecture has been through a lot of filming, crafting, and sculpting. It has made a huge impact on the fashion and entertainment industry as well as giving back to the community. It’s practically a legend. If I ever go back to Rome, that would be my number one destination.
