Going IN the fountains?

Are people allowed to go in the fountains at Villa d'Este? I have seen people go into the Villa Borghese fountains in Rome, so I am wondering if this is also permitted at Villa d'Este.

Unless you're part of a Fellini movie being filmed on location, no.

These are fragile, and one of them no longer works with natural water pressure but has to be helped. Your desire is equivalent to wanting to touch a painting in an art museum, or handle a sculpture. Don't even think about it.

Imagine for a moment the number of guests a monument like this has in a year. Each individual deludes himself that he is the only one to touch it. Pretty soon, it's ruined.
