This fountain, built by Nicola Salvi (1762), into a wall of the Poli Palace, is an aesthetically pleasing union of Classic and Baroque styles. It is said that the inspiration came from a Bernini design. The dominant central scene offers oceanic waves, featuring a chariot towed by seahorses, and driven by Triton (P. Bracci). On either side are statues by P. Valle, representing abundance and health. The fountain is named for a nearby 'trivio' or crossroads. It is the most famous in Rome, because of the fowollowing legend: if a visitor throws a coin into the fountain, they are sure to return to Rome.
