Monument of Victor Emmanuel II - Rome


Constructed between 1885 and 1911, Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II was built in order to honour Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of unified Italy and the man responsible for making Rome its capital. Today the landmark houses the museum of the Italian Reunification in its base and is also holds the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Despite being nicknamed some rather derogatory names thanks to its imposing nature, including the ‘wedding cake’, and ‘the false teeth’, Il Vittoriano offers some spectacular views over Rome and every year attracts many visitors, regardless of its controversy!
