The terminal part of the Vergine aqueduct, the only one of the ancient aqueducts continuously in use to this day, the Trevi Fountain is the best known of the Roman fountains. Its name derives from a toponym in use in the area since the mid-20th century, Regio Trivii, referring to the confluence of three streets in the square, or from the triple outlet of the water of the original fountain.
The underground archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius – the City of Water is part of the intricate maze of ancient relics of Rome. The evocative exhibit shows the structures of an imperial domus, the castellum aquae of the Virgin Aqueduct, the famous face of Alessandro Helios, and findings discovered during the renovation of the former Cinema Trevi. On a journey backwards in time, it is possible to touch Rome’s millennial stratification and observe the archaeological evidence of the great events that characterised the city’s history, from the realisation of Aqua Virgo to the fire of Nero, from the sack of Alarico to the siege of the Goths.
