The latest of the LEGO landmark sets involves the Trevi Fountain. An important site in Rome, Italy, it happens to be the largest baroque monument in the city, not to mention one of the most recognizable. Designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed 30 years later by his friend and sculpture Pietro Bracci in 1762, the details are surprisingly kept as much intact as possible in the LEGO landmark set.

The Trevi Fountain LEGO landmark set measures five inches tall, seven inches wide and five inches deep. It is comprised of the facade of the Palazzo Poli, the statues of Ocean, Abundance and Health as well as translucent blue LEGO bricks that stand in for water. An accommpanying booklet to the LEGO landmark set boasts more details and historical facts.
