Selfish selfie-takers cause Trevi fountain fisticuffs

Two women started out a steamy fight at the famous fountain in the Italian capital

A wild brawl broke out between two women jockeying for the most flattering spot to snap a selfie at a popular tourist attraction in Rome, according to a report.

The argument erupted as both women wanted to take a photo at a precise point close to the fountain - a spot they believed was the best angle to show off the impressive sculpture behind them.

Finding the ideal spot for a selfie can sometimes be a challenge, especially if it's at the crowded Trevi Fountain in Rome.

The local police had to intervene and the pair, a 19-year-old Dutchwoman and a 44-year-old Italian-American, have been reported to prosecutors.

What started as an exchange of words between the women became a physical fight and then their respective family members joined in.

A further two officers had to get involved before the families stopped fighting.

According to the Guardian, the fight happened at a time of day when the light from the sun makes the fountain a ideal backdrop. The eight tourists reportedly sustained only bruises and were later charged for the violence.

The Trevi fountain, designed by the architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762, attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The fountain has appeared in several notable films, including "La Dolce Vita" and "Roman Holiday".
