INTERLUDE

Cool waters for a hot day.
The Trevi Fountain in Rome is known for the tradition of throwing coins into the water for good fortune.
The name comes from Roman times when the original basin was constructed at the end of the Aqueduct. " Tres vie" was the intersection of three roads The present fountain was constructed between 1732 and 1762 and was refurbished late 20th century when recirculating pumps were installed.
