THE LOVERS FOUNTAIN

This unassuming fountain is often overlooked by its grander and more famous neighbour, the Trevi Fountain. During the First and Second World Wars couples would visit the fountain before a soldier left for the frontline. The tearful signorina would fill a glass from the fountain which her lover would drink. The glass would then be broken to symbolise their love which, unlike the glass, could never be broken!
