Stunning drone video shows Trevi Fountain like you have never seen it before

This stunning shows the Trevi Fountain as you have never seen it before. And, will likely never see again. Normally, the famous fountain in is a tourist hotspot and capturing drone videos like these would be simply impossible. However, during the lockdown, even the beautiful Trevi Fountain is deserted, allowing a drone video like this one to be shot in relative safety.

The drone video provides a perspective of the Trevi Fountain that is both spectacular and impossible at the same time. Without the help of a very skilled pilot and an FPV drone, it would simply not be possible to show the famous fountain this way.

Normally a tourist hotspot, the Trevi Fountain is now deserted as a result of the coronavirus lockdown that is in place in Italy.

Some people on Facebook expressed their concerns about possibly damaging the fountain with the drone. Eventhough we do not have any details on the drone that was used, it is understandable that people would have these concerns when you see how closely the unmanned aircraft comes to some parts of this magnificent work of art. At one point the drone even flies in between the statues of a man and a horse. Although a small and lightweight FPV drone is unlikely to do much damage to the Travertine stone the fountain is made from.

The video was created by Nils Astrologo and Gianmarco Gabriele in collaboration with Mauro Pagliacci

About the Trevi Fountain

On Wikipedia it says:

“The Trevi Fountain (Italian: Fontana di Trevi) is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome, Italy, designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini and several others. Standing 26.3 metres (86 ft) high and 49.15 metres (161.3 ft) wide,[1] it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The fountain has appeared in several notable films, including Roman Holiday, Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, the eponymous Three Coins in the Fountain, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, and Sabrina Goes to Rome.[2]”
