The pair, who have not yet been tracked down, are thought to be British, and will end up potentially paying a pretty penny for the pic they convinced onlookers to snap of them frolicking in the buff. That's because, per a police source, they face a fine of at least $460 if caught.
Many Italians are understandably irked by the pair's behavior, since it's pretty disrespectful to goof off like this in a place meant to commemorate the dead. Though presumably also because fountain-jumping tourists are apparently quite a nuisance in Italy, especially during the hot summer months, as authorities struggle to control it.
In a Tweet, Italy's interior minister Matteo Salvini was pretty blunt with his criticism of these particular fountain-jumpers, posting the message that translates to “I would know how to ‘educate’ these idiots if they get caught, Italy is not their bathroom!" alongside a story about them. So, uh, pro-tip: maybe keep your clothes on and Photoshop yourself into the fountains?
Frankly, it's very possible these dudes were just super hot after a day of sightseeing and desperately needed to cool off. Then again, if that's the case, they should have probably high-tailed it to one of these gorgeous beaches.
