I only knew of the existence of this fountain when I got to know the song 'Three Coins in the Fountain' sung by Connie Francis, years ago. When a package holiday to Europe was planned a visit to the TreviFountain was included in the itinerary. The Fountain was the creation of Nicola Salvi, way back in the year 1762 having the dimension Dimensions 26.3 m × 49.15 m (86 ft × 161.3 ft) A beautiful piece of art is what I saw when I arrived there and as per norm I too threw 3 coins and made my 3 wishes. I do not remember what those wishes were but it was a great experience being there. Some of you would have been there too. Do you remember what your wishes were or would you want to go there if you have not gone there yet?

Yes I have been there twice, but I didn't throw any coins in; I never have believed in the 'wishing well' idea although some people will throw coins into practically any standing water!

Yes. You are right. It was a typo. It was fun to do it. And I saw how there were men engaged to dive and pick up those coins.

@allknowing A few years ago a man was convicted of stealing after he had made a lot of money picking the coins out of the fountain every night. Personally I don't really see how gathering coins that people have thrown away can be considered stealing.

@Fleura I ithink that money would belong to those who maintain the fountain.

Do you call "Fontana di Trevi" Triveni or you are talking about another fountain? The one in your photo is Fontana di Trevi and it was made by Nicola Salvi, but not in 1962, but in 1762, a big difference in time.

It is disgusting that I could have made so many typos in my post. I have made the corrections. Thanks for showing them to me. I knew it was called Trevi and was in fact enamoured when I saw the date when I was searching for info.

What a marvelous sight to see! Have never been to see it up close and personal, but what a thrill it must be to toss a coin or two into that beauty.

That would be a beautiful place to go and throw coins in the fountain.
