Las Vegas Trevi Fountain (2005)

A copy of the Trevi Fountain outside the Forum Shops, the luxury shopping mall annex of Caesars Palace. The original 18th century Trevi Fountain depicts the watery realm of Neptune. The fountain is probably the most famous in Rome because of the legend that throwing a coin over your left shoulder into the fountain ensures your return to Rome. This replica accumulates its own share of specie, but I have no idea whether people throw in the coins to ensure their return to Las Vegas or to improve their gambling luck.

In the background, looking onto the Las Vegas Strip, is the front of Harrah’s casino, and the copy of Venice’s San Giorgio Maggiore bell tower at the Venetian Las Vegas.
