Italy - Trevi Fountain - February 1969

The 1954 movie 'Three Coins in the Fountain' made the Trevi Fountain popular for tourists but you can see in these photos that we are the only people around other than those two boys who have magnets on string and are fishing for the coins, a policeman came by and shooed them off but they were back not long after.  A few years ago I read an article in the Sydney Morning Herald about a couple of lads now grown up talking of their youth and fishing for coins... I wonder if those two men were these two boys!  I've searched for that article but can't find it.

Just look at the Trevi Fountain today!
