Vittorio Emanuele II monument, designed by Giuseppe Sacconi at the end of 19th century, is a monument to honour Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a unified Italy. It was inaugurated in 1911 and completed in 1935.
The colossal white marble structure has a huge equestrian sculpture of Victor Emmanuel II and two statues of the goddess Victoria riding on quadrigas. It also features majestic stairways, tall Corinthian columns and fountains.
The monument contains the tomb of the First World War's unknown soldier; a museum of Italian Reunification; and a cafe.
You can get nice views of Rome from structure for free, but for a fee you can take a lift to the very top ' The Terrace of the Quadrigas' where you can enjoy stunning Panoramic views

A splendid night picture with a wonderful contrast between the building and the black sky.
The scaffolding to the left side gives an extra touch at these architecture picture.
Sharpness and clarity be superb, also colours and subject makes these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
