Fendi saves Trevi Fountain in Rome
Karl Lagerfeld was in Rome this past week for the launch of the 'Fendi for Fountains' cultural project.With a €2.18m donation, Italian fashion house Fendi will work with the City of Rome to help restore one of the capital's most adored monuments -- the Trevi Fountain.The 20-month restoration project will be the longest and largest since they were first completed in 1762. With an estimated 3,000 euros in coins thrown into the fountain every day (set to bring good luck and a return to Rome) they receive plenty of wear and tear, but the money goes to a supermarket for the needy. The next project for Fendi for Fountains will be the upkeep of the four late Renaissance Fountains of Piazza Quattro Fontane.
