This is Il Vittoriano or Altare della Patria, a monumental complex built in honor of Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of a unified Italy. It is located between Venice square and Capitoline hill, in Rome. It houses the Unknown Soldier tomb and a military museum.
Construction began in 1885, with the demolition of several buildings in the area, and was inaugurated in 1925.

Ciao Pedro, great view of famous monument, excellent clarity, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi Pedro, A nice presentation of this monumental complex. Nice lights and everything is in details. Great composition which all the activities of the locals and tourists are included in the frame at that particular moment.
Thank for sharing

Hi Pedro,
Strong lateral lines giving linear perspective and well defined against the blue sky.The visitors, buses and cars used as a scale to emphasize the size of the building. Very neat capture, well taken.

Memories of our trip to Rome.

Hi Pedro, I was going to say its a pity theres so much traffic but it shows the size of the building and those statues.Nice crisp whites. Fiona


Hi Pedro..nice shot...excellent tones and light...great focus and exposure. I did a workshop to straighten out some of the divergence....
