Two homeless men in Rome used magnets to fish dozens of euros' worth of coins from the capital's famous Trevi fountain where tourists toss coins in a tradition that says the act ensures they return to the city.

The two men were arrested by police as they were counting the coins, the Ansa news agency reported Sunday.

The fountain was the setting for a famous scene in Federico Fellini's film La Dolce Vita.  -Sapa-dpa
