A barrier has been set up around Rome’s Trevi Fountain to stop people from sitting along its rim. As described by Rome’s mayor, the barrier will neither block views of the fountain nor prevent people from throwing coins.

Sitting on the fountain was made illegal in 2019, but the city had not enforced that law by erecting a fence until now. The barrier will also help obstruct the occasional visitor who illegally climbs into the fountain.
