1849 Victor Emmanuel II become King
Fact about Victor Emmanuel: ”He inherited the kingdom in the midst of the revolutions around Europe and in this dynamic period in European history he manage to maneuver between the different rival partners in a way so he seemed to end up backing the winning side on several occasions. This enabled him to enlarge his kingdom and eventually form the Kingdom of Italy which is fairly close to the present geographical extensions of Italy.”
One of the biggest (and not most beautiful) monuments of Rome is the giant Vittoriano - I had seen it many times before I realized there is actually a museum inside the building. For the first time I ventured up to the top of the monument to get the view from up there and then I stumbled upon a museum up there.
The view from the top of the hill is pretty good you can see a large part of the city. And inside the Vittoriano is a small exhibition which tells a bit of the history of the creation of the modern state of Italy - back in the middle of the 19th century. I found the view from the top of the hill more interesting than the museum - but if you do walk up the hill you might as well have a stroll through the museum to get a bit of information of the creation of Italy.
