Part of the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II) or Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) or "Il Vittoriano", Rome, Italy.

The monument was built to honour Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy. It occupies a site between the Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill. The monument was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi in 1885; sculpture for it was parcelled out to established sculptors all over Italy. It was inaugurated in 1911 and completed in 1935.

The monument is built of white marble and features stairways, Corinthian columns, fountains, an equestrian sculpture of Victor Emmanuel and two chariots and winged victories.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'A Bridge Too Far'.

Best wishes,
Philip

Excellent composition, making simple sense out of the marble wedding-cake extravaganza.

A splendid work of art, and you have captured so much detail in the figures on this monument.
