This light house on Monte Gianicolo was a gift to Rome in 1911 by the Italians from Argentina and it is a work of Manfredo Manfredi.
It is just a short stroll from Piazza Garibaldi.
If you don't want to walk up the hill in the heat then take bus 780. You will also be rewarded with wonderful views over Rome from up here. Many thanks to VT'er Piccolina for directing me to this place :-))
