The landmark building of Venice Square can be seen from the elevator to the top floor. At one end of Corso Street, the white building is a good landmark, and at the other end is the obelisk. Go down the street and turn left somewhere to reach the Pantheon; go straight and turn right to the Spanish Square.
The Motherland Altar was built in 1885 and was completed in 1911. Initially built to commemorate King Violito Emmanuel II's reunification of Italy, the tomb of the unknown hero martyr was later added, which is equivalent to the monument of the Chinese people's heroes. So it was formerly called "Emmanuel's second century monument" and later it became the symbol of Italy's unity and independence.
Up the steps from Venice Square, many visitors sit on the steps for a rest. When entering the range of the altar, the security uncle politely and firmly signaled that no drinks should be brought, and the old man smiled after the treatment. Looking at the solemn guards and the torch platform, my mind can not help but converge a lot.
The National Altary, commemorating the unknown heroes who died for the country, looks far away at the magnificent architecture, and the white marble exterior wall appears particularly solemn and solemn. The stairs went up in flames to commemorate the heroes. Tourists like knitting, many people are tired of walking and sitting on the steps to rest.
The Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II) or Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) or "Il Vittoriano" is a monument built to honour Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy, located in Rome, Italy. It occupies a site between the Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill. It was inaugurated in 1911 and completed in 1935.The monument is built of white marble from Botticino, Brescia, and features stairways, Corinthian columns, fountains, an equestrian sculpture of Victor Emmanuel and two statues of the goddess Victoria riding on quadrigas. The structure is 135 m (443 ft) wide and 70 m (230 ft) high.The base of the structure houses the museum of Italian Reunification. In 2007, a panoramic elevator was added to the structure, allowing visitors to ride up to the roof for 360 degree views of Rome.
The whole building is magnificent and daunting. Personally, I think the appearance is more worthwhile than the inside of it! __________ No tickets, Venice Square is behind.
Above the altar are inscribed several large Latin characters "reunification of the motherland, freedom of the people". In front of the monument, there are broad stone steps, gold-plated symbolic bronze statues on both sides, the left represents thought, and the right represents action. There are two semi-circular fountain pools in front of the stone steps, on which lie a giant stone statue, representing the sea on both sides of the East and west of Italy. On the central stone terrace is the tall gold-plated bronze statue of Emmanuel II riding a horse, both 12 meters high and 12 meters wide.
I get it. It looks like a giant typewriter. Or a wedding cake. It's been called an eyesore against the Roman landscape, a big white thing sticking out in the middle of it all.Still, I think it's beautiful. I found the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier here quite moving. There's a restroom inside and an easier indoor path to reach the top of the Basilica di Santa Maria in Aracoeli without climbing those thigh-breaking stairs. I'm certain Vittorio would've wanted it this way.
This is a grand white marble monument built in honor of Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of unified Italy. The structure consists of tall Corinthian columns and fountains, majestic stairways, an equestrian sculpture of Vittorio Emanuele and two statues of the goddess Victoria. Locals refer to the monument as the wedding cake.
The building's appearance is not universally admired, though I rather like it. However, the most important thing about it from a visitor's perspective isn't how it looks but what you can see from its roof.After going up in the lift at the back of the building, you reach a viewing platform with incredible views over the city. Key Roman sights that you can see include the Colosseum, the Forum / Palatine Hill and St Peter's Basilica. Highly recommended.
