This monument is also called "the typewriter"and it is dedicated to the first king of the united Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II. It was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi in 1895 and it was inaugurated in 1911.
Besides a huge sculpture of the king, fountains and two statues of the goddess Victoria riding on quadrigas, the monument also hosts the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. There are always fresh flowers here and an eternal flame.
It is a nice place to visit for some great views of Rome and Piazza Venezia.
