It looks as though luxury brand Fendi is embracing its roots, as the company has just announced donations that will help restore two of Romeís 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 faÁade 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 labelís creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, will produce a series of photographs of famous Roman monuments to accompany the renovations.
