There are many fountains in Rome; however the most visited and famous of all is probably the Trevi Fountain. The fountain is thronged by tourists day and night. One reason may be that it has featured in a few movies before. The key figure of the fountain, in front of a large niche, is Neptune, god of the sea (this go is common in many Italian fountains such as Bologna�s Neptune Fountain). He is riding a chariot in the shape of a shell, pulled by two sea horses. One of the common sight that one will see around the fountain is coin throwing by tourists. There is a legend that visitors throwing coins into the fountain are ensured a return to Rome. It is estimated that 3,000 euros in coins are thrown into the fountain each day. The coins collected had been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome�s needy.

“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
