The Vittoriano or Altare della Patria is a monument of great symbolic value that brings together all the values of Italian Risorgimento and of Italian Constitution. The construction of the Vittoriano was started by Umberto I of Savoy in 1885, son of Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy. The need was to have an extremely symbolic memorial monument to witness the changes in the country.
Yet many Romans call it the wedding cake, because they believe that the bright white of the monument doesn’t match with the surrounding area of the Colosseum and of the Imperial Fora.
