Tourist corridor in place at Rome's Trevi Fountain until September.
Rome has introduced a trial non-stop passageway at the Trevi Fountain, to deter large groups of tourists from congregating around the 18th-century monument.
The experimental initiative will remain in place until the end of September and the flow of crowds will be managed by retired carabinieri and vigili between 09.00 and midnight.
The city will introduce permanent measures if the trial is effective in protecting the heritage and security of the monument.
In recent months there have been numerous cases of individuals – both Italian and foreign – jumping into the waters of the Baroque fountain, in some cases without their clothes.
During the monument's €2 million restoration, sponsored by fashion house Fendi, a temporary tourist bridge was installed over the fountain's basin in 2014.
