Italy - Rome - Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II






Mar. 2012

Designed in 1885 in honor of the first king of unified Italy, it was inaugurated in 1911. This huge, really huge, and subject of controversy for several reasons in addition with its size : this is white amidst brown buildinds, and a part of the capitoline hill with its medieval parts was destroyed for it.
Conçu en 1885 pour honorer le premier roi de l'Italie unifiée, il fut inaugré en 1911. Ce monument est réellement énorme et est sujet de controverse pour plusieurs raisons en plus de son volume : il est tout blanc au milieu de bâtiments plutôt bruns-marrons, et une partie de la colline du capitole et des ses éléments moyen-âgeux a du être détruite pour son érection.
