After only 17 months since the beginning of the restoration works, and earlier than the scheduled date for the end of 2015, the water of the Trevi Fountain will start flowing again.
On January 2013, FENDI announced the restoration of the Trevi Fountain in Rome under its patronage. This involvement has progressed into an ambitious project for the preservation of cultural heritage of the city of Rome called ‘FENDI for Fountains.’ In addition to the Trevi Fountain, the project also included the restoration of the complex of the “Four Fountains”, which ended in May 2015.
The renovation project, playing with creativity, has given life to one of the most innovative work-sites ever conceived before for this kind of operation, without interrupting the fruition of one of Rome’s most beautiful and visited monument in the world.
The Trevi Fountain, similarly to the Italian fashion house, is steeped in tradition and history. FENDI was founded in the city of Rome in 1925 and has continued to look to the city for inspiration for their runway collections.
