Rione Trevi is named after the large Fontana di Trevi at the centre of the rione. It includes the western side of the Quirinale hill and the plain between this hill and Via del Corso. Three swords are the symbol of Rione Trevi (Trevi is a corruption of trivio, three streets).
Ruins in Giardino Colonnese and in Horti Sallustiani are the surviving evidence of ancient Rome in this rione. The two statues of Castor and Pollux in Piazza del Quirinale come from Tempio di Serapide (Caracalla 217 d.C.) and the egyptian obelisk in the same square comes from the Mausoleo di Augusto.
Rione Trevi has some of the most imposing palaces of Rome: Palazzo del Quirinale, the current official residence of the President of the Italian Republic, and Palazzo Barberini the current office of National Gallery of Ancient Art (150 mt away from my place). They were built between the end of the XVIth century and the first half of the next century on the Quirinale hill, when the area was almost considered countryside and they did not have space limitations. Other interesting palaces of more or less the same period are Palazzo Sciarra, Palazzo Colonna and Palazzo Odescalchi, all between Via del Corso and the Quirinale hill.
SS. Apostoli is the main church of the rione, while the façades S. Susanna by Carlo Maderno (1603) and S. Marcello by Carlo Fontana (1683) mark the start and the end of Baroque architecture in Rome. Elegance and a bit of folly are the main characteristics of the decoration of many palaces in Trevi. The prevalence of XVIIth and XVIIIth century architectural patterns is very evident also in minor aspects.
Fontana di Trevi was the terminal point of an ancient Roman aqueduct which was built by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa (Emperor Augustus' son-in-law) to supply water to the baths named after him. The aqueduct lay underground for most of its length: it came to the surface near Collegio del Nazzareno where some of its arches are still visible. It was restored by Pope Nicholas V in 1453 and several popes considered the idea of building a monumental fountain. Pope Clement XII was personally involved in choosing the design of the fountain and its decoration (1732); it is interesting to note that the project by Nicola Salvi that he endorsed is totally free of religious connotations; the main statue portrays Ocean, but only those very familiar with traditional iconography can tell that it does not portray Neptune, the pagan God of the Sea. Its overall design recalls that of a Roman triumphal arch and the two tritons acting as horse tamers are a reminder of Castor and Pollux, the twin demi-gods who protected Ancient Rome. It is the tradition of coin toss in his large pond: a to return to Rome, two to find the great love, three to get married. A curiosity: the fountain was the wonderful setting of a scene from the famous film Fellini's "la dolce vita" in which a provocative Anita Ekberg wrapped in a black dress bathing in its waters by calling Marcello Mastroianni.
