Vittoriano Monument

Photos of the building itself, and a few more of the things to be seen
within the various exhibition spaces tucked away inside the "typewriter"
- particularly a celebration of the life and times of the man and men
who were to deliver the southern half of the country into the newly-formed
Kingdom of Italy.

Although staunchly republican abroad, Giuseppe Garibaldi nevertheless
sided with Victor Emmanuel II, then the King of Sardinia, rather than
see the fledging Italian nation descend into civil war - to the eternal
detriment of his Sicilian and Neapolitan followers!
