Let’s discover a special place dedicated to love and passion in the center of Rome.
Near the most famous fountain in the world, the spectacular Trevi Fountain, there is a little fountain, that is known only by a few and that the architect Nicola Salvi created next to the monumental Trevi Fountain to give the opportunity to satisfy the thirst of pedestrian.
Its name is the Fountain of Lovers and it hides a romantic story and legend.
The Roman girls, when the lover had to leave to enlist, to be absolutely sure that he would return to them, they used to have a little ritual: they accompanied their lover to drink the Trevi water, bringing new glasses, they did drop two cheerful jets from the fountain located on the right of the great fountain, drinking water along the Virgin and then broke the glasses so their love would last forever.
When the architect designed the fountain was concerned it was easy to reach it because that simple fountain had a very specific purpose; In fact, if the Trevi Fountain although the exhibition monumental water Virgin, was both the Acqua Vergine aqueduct terminal castle – the one built by Agrippa in the first century. B.C. to fuel its thermal baths and give the water to the Royal Via Lata – that Pope Clement XII did reactivate and expand to bring water to the Campo Marzio. In the seventeenth century the water was only in the aristocratic families home and in the monasteries, where it was needed for productive activities.
For the people drinking water was available in the fountains and drinking fountains there and the women went to fetch water with jugs; just to give the people of Rome the opportunity to fetch water, the architect Nicola Salvi built the fountain with a tank that collects water. it is possible that this tank was part of the fountain that stood in the same place before it was built the monumental exhibition.
A little curiosity on the fountain: the two jets that cross, forming a heart and here and gave rise to the legend of the lovers. Salvi could simply make a single torch down but maybe wanted to give the fountain, a symbolic value. So he decided to bring down water from two pipes that made her jump in the tub crossing at the end of the fall.
In Christian symbolism doves drinking together in the stone chalice represent the soul and traverse the inner emotions and higher emotions like love that can never end.
