Piazza Venezia

 

 

Description

Piazza Venezia is a central square of Rome, in which several streets intersect including Via dei Fori Imperiali and  Via del Corso.

This square came into being between 1885 and 1911 during the realization of the Vittoriano, it was realized by enlarging a pre-existent small square.

The Vittoriano known also as the Altare della Patria was created to commemorate Italian unification and in honor of  Vittorio Emanuele II, Italy’s first king (to get to the top take the glass lift). It also hosts the tomb of the unknown soldier.

This square  takes its name from the Palazzo Venezia, built by the Venetian Cardinal, Pietro Barbo (later Pope Paul II).

Palazzo Venezia was the first of Rome’s great Renaissance palaces, built between 1455 and 1464. For centuries it served as the embassy of the Venetian Republic, although its best known resident was Mussolini, who famously made speeches from its balcony.
