Montecitorio Square - Rome


In the centre of Piazza Montecitorio stands the Obelisk of Montecitorio, originally from Heliopolis in Egypt, dating back to the 6th century BC. In 10 BC, it was bought to Rome by the Emperor Augustus to be used as the gnomon of the Solarium Augusti. Many years later in 1789, Pope Pius VI moved the obelisk to its current position in front of the Palazzo Montecitorio, which today serves as the seat of the Italian Chamber of Deputies.
