Description of Victor Emmanuel Monument

The monument to Victor Emmanuel is a magnificent complex, finished in 1911 from pure white marble. This is the memory of the first king of the united Italy, Victor Emanuel. Known as Il Vittoriano, this monument was launched in 1885 and was opened in 1911 in honor of Victor Emmanuel II of Savoy, the first king of united Italy. The king is depicted here as a gilded bronze equestrian statue 12 meters long. The building also has a museum of Risorgimento, the events that led to the unification of Italy. Monument to Victor Emmanuel built of white marble. Among the local population of Rome, it is also known as the “wedding cake” (one of its many nicknames). The monument to Victor Emmanuel is widely considered the epitome of overestimated self-esteem, insensitive architecture, although the views that can be seen as impressionable. A glass elevator at the back of the building brings visitors to the very top of the building.
