The “Vittoriano”: The Altar of the Fatherland in Rome - Virtual Experience 

The Vittoriano is the National Monument dedicated to celebrating King Victor Emanuel II of Savoy and the Unification of Italy, so it's also known as the Altare della Patria: The Altar of the Fatherland in Rome. It has an imposing and oversize, that towers over Piazza di Venezia ad Roman Forum, in the intentions of its creator the Architect Count Giuseppe Sacconi was a sort of Mixt between the Pergamon Altar and the Propilaei of Athens: an hommage to those civil liberties and rights recently conquered with the Unification of Italy.

But its construction which spanned several decades, sacrificed a whole middle age and renaissance neighborhood with several buildings tore dows to make room for it, it also became the Monument to the Unknown soldier after WWI and was used strategically by Mussolini during Fascism as a scenographic place for his militarist rhetoric displays of power. 

the Building still today attracts mixed reactions from both locals and tourists but has inside a whole museum about the unification of Italy and besides the stunning views that you can enjoy from its top the visit to this large marbly monument is a journey into Italy's often misunderstood unification process.

In this virtual experience, we will discover the building inside out with its many underground chambers and collections of historical objects, artworks, and militaria as well as its controversial construction.
