It would be appropriate to say that this area represents the rich and amazing history of ancient Rome. It is also, without a doubt, the symbol of unity for the people of Italy.
As far as the history of façade goes, it was built by King Vittorio Emanuele III to celebrate the 50th independence anniversary of Italy in 1911. However, the inauguration was done at that time and the completion took place in 1935. A must experience landmark here is the prominent statue of King Victor Emmanuel II, who was the first king of the country and was also known as the Father of the Nation. This statue is situated at the centre of the building. In addition to that, there are two porticos on each end. These porticos have chariots including four horses each. The neoclassical design and beautiful architecture is a complete treat for art lovers. The spectacular view of Rome from the top of the monument is something which mustn’t be missed at any cost.
The monument is located between Via del Corso and Capitoline Hill and it is believed that various buildings on the hill were demolished in order to construct Piazza Venezia e Vittoriano. The interior of the monument has numerous exhibition rooms designed for holding exhibitions. On the other hand, the Venice Square also has a wax museum famous for statues of various world-renowned celebrities such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Barack Obama, and many more.
