Trevi Fountain, Rome

Trevi Fountain, Rome

Such a beautiful fountain. I wonder how old it is?

Facts:
1.In 1732, Pope Clement XII commissioned Nicola Salvi to create a large fountain at the Trevi Square.( answers my question, but doesn’t look that old)
2.Tossing a coin into Trevi Fountain, according to legend, will guarantee a return trip to Rome. The fountain is swept daily, and the money is donated to Charities, an Italian charity
