Piazza Venezia is located at the intersection of the most important streets of the capital: Via dei Fori Imperiali, Via del Corso, Via Nazionale and Corso Vittorio. It is famous because there is the Complesso del Vittoriano (Vittoriano Museum Complex) built to celebrate the unification of Italy and freedom from foreign domination, made by Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoia, to whom the monument "Altare della Patria”, is dedicated. That’s why the monument is known under the name of ‘ Altare della Patria’ (Altar of the Fatherland) and Monumento Nazionale of Vittorio Emanuele II. Complesso del Vittoriano is in perfect neoclassical style, dominated by the massive use of elements taken from ancient Greek, Hellenistic and Roman culture.
