Treasures of The Trevi Fountain (9 pics)

Posted in       15 Nov 2011       10099       4

From time to time the municipality of Rome cleans the famous Trevi Fountain and gathers coins thrown by tourists “for luck.” This procedure is performed under the supervision of Carabinieri who count all coins. According to the special order, each coin becomes community property once it has touched the bottom of the fountain. Tourist donations bring Rome hundreds of thousands of euros annually. These funds used to go to the charity. But during the time of crisis, Rome has decided to spend them on the needs of the city.

I bet homeless people like to visit that fountain too when they need some lunch money.

So the money used to help the poor and desitute and now it helps rich, filthy pig politicians. Typical. Someday it is all going to fall apart and land on their heads.

Figures the damnable politicians would get their greasy mitts on that money. They eventually steal everything.
