Designed by Nicola Salvi in1732. It depicts Neptune's chariot led by Tritons with sea horses - one wild, one docile - representing the moods of the sea. The word Trevi refers to the three roads (tre vie) which converged at the fountain. (From Lonely Planet)

Take some time to look at the amazing detail of the sculptures and the stories that they tell. Walk around to all sides of the fountain to get the full picture.
