It is a national monument built in honour of Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a unified Italy, which is a symbol of Italian Unification. It was designed in 1885, and its construction was completed in 1925.
Today, it is the largest monument built from corpse-white marble imported from Brescia. It features stairways, fountains, Corinthian columns, an equestrian sculpture of Victor Emmanuel II and two statues of the goddess Victoria. It has a total area of 17,000 square metres. In 2007, a panoramic elevator was added to the structure, allowing visitors to ride up to the roof.

    Я- фанат этого места! Для меня сильнее всех соборов и строений Рима вместе взятых. Мощно, красиво, аутентично. Прекрасная кафешка на крыше с видом на Рим. ♥

    The tomb of the unknown soldier and the eternal flame of Rome hold important spots here also and are guarded year round.
