Like many ancient architectures in Rome, The Victor Emmanuel II monument is one of the best preserved structures we've seen and it is located at Capitoline Hill. It commemorates the achievements of Victor Emmanuel II of Savoia, the Italian king who was successful with the unification of the country in 1870.
The equestrian statue on the left represents King Victor Emmanuel II and on the right features the goddess Victoria riding on quadrigas.
While walking around, our eyes are attracted to these beautiful sculptures that frame the monument. I've no idea what they represent but they absolutely bring elegance to the surroundings and they look wonderful against the evening sky.
