Water flows once again at Rome's restored Trevi fountain
罗马“许愿池“修复工程竣工

11月3日,在意大利罗马,特雷维喷泉在修复工程竣工仪式上重新喷水。

当日,历时17个月的特雷维喷泉修复工程正式竣工。特雷维喷泉建于公元1762年,也被称为“许愿池“,曾是电影《罗马假日》的取景地。

话说,意大利是很有保护古迹意识的。在他们看来,历史遗迹如同基因不可或缺,又以低调的姿态出现在生活的方方面面。不论民众还是官员,心里都给古建筑贴上了“珍藏品“的标签。

ROME (AP) — As hundreds of tourists and Romans took pictures, water began flowing once again at Rome's famed Trevi fountain after a 17-month, 2.2 million euro ($2.4 million) restoration.

The restoration was paid for by the Rome-based Fendi fashion house. Rome's top culture official, Claudio Parisi, said at the fountain's re-opening Tuesday such public-private partnerships are essential to preserve the city's cultural treasures in tight economic times.

Tourists still had access to the dry fountain during the restoration, approaching the stonework along a temporary bridge that gave them a close-up view of the sculpture of Oceanus in a shell chariot.

The fountain that featured in Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" is a must-see in Rome. Legend has it that tossing a coin over one's shoulder into the fountain ensures a return visit.

restoration:往往是形容来修复被损坏或年代久远的建筑物、美术品文物等等。
