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.
