|Scott and Katie Windsor at Fontana di Trevi in 2010|
This has happened before, back in 2007, when an "artist" used the fountain to make a statement, so the above is a sneak peak at what it will look like on the 29th.
I did not check on the 29th, but here on the 30th I am having difficulty finding any article reporting the changing of the color of the Fountain of Trevi in Rome. I did find several more articles reporting it WOULD happen in the days prior to the 29th, but not finding anything since that time. Now I did find a "live webcam" of Trevi, and looking at it today - if there was a color change yesterday, it's back to normal today. Here's that link:
OK, they DID turn the Fontana di Trevi red on April 29th! They did not use red dye, like the "artist" in 2007 did (shown above), rather they used red lighting. I happened to check the live webcam again and they had a link to a time-lapse from 4/29 - and while all day long there was no change, after sunset, the red lights came on. It also appeared they projected something on the building behind the fountain, but I could not make that out. Here's a snip I captured from the time-lapse:
And here's another picture I found in Google:
