Rome. Italy. View of soldiers or guards at the tomb of Unknown Soldier at the white marble Victor Emmanuel II Monument or Vittoriano which dominates the Piazza Venezia square. Considered Italy’s most flamboyant landmark, the monument was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi in 1895 in honour of King Victor Emmanuel II who was the first king of a unified Italy in 1871 and has been ridiculed by some as being similar to a giant wedding cake or typewriter.
