It looks as though luxury brand
Fendi is embracing its roots, as the company has just announced donations that will help restore two of Rome’s most iconic landmarks. A nearly $3 million gift from the brand will fund a 20-month project that will restore the crumbling Trevi Fountain by cleaning the façade and statues, re-waterproofing the main basin and replacing the gilded Latin inscriptions. Fendi
will also help with the restoration of La Quattro Fontane, thanks to an additional donation of around $434,000. The label’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, will produce a series of photographs of famous Roman monuments to accompany the renovations.
