Il Vittoriano, il cui nome deriva da Vittorio Emanuele II, primo re d'Italia, venne realizzato nel 1885 dall'architetto Giuseppe Sacconi, che si ispirò ai maestosi santuari ellenistici, per celebrare l'unità nazionale.
Alla morte del sovrano, infatti, fu deciso di innalzare un monumento che celebrasse il Padre della Patria e con lui l'intera stagione risorgimentale.
Inizialmente concepito come monumento alla dinastia dei Savoia, successivamente divenne luogo per la sepoltura del "Milite Ignoto", il corpo di un militare italiano morto durante la Grande Guerra, che rappresenta tutti i caduti e i dispersi nelle varie battaglie.
L'intento del Sacconi era anche quello di rappresentare, allegoricamente e geograficamente, tutta l’Italia, attraverso personificazioni di virtù, città, regioni e mari. L’unica raffigurazione non simbolica è la statua di Vittorio Emanuele II a cavallo, che si erge proprio al centro della struttura.
L'elemento principale del monumento è il portico neo-classico caratterizzato da colonne corinzie, denominato Altare della Patria, che ben presto connotò l'intero complesso monumentale.
L'architettura ricorda il tempio di Nike situato sull'acropoli di Atene.
Il tema centrale di tutto il monumento è rappresentato dalle due iscrizioni sui propilei: "Patriae Unitati" e "Civium Libertati", "All'unità della Patria" e "Alla libertà dei cittadini ".
Le due fontane ai lati rappresentano la costa Adriatica con il Leone di San Marco e la costa Tirrenica, con la lupa di Roma e la sirena Partenope.
È il più grande monumento nazionale, capace di eguagliare, per ambizione e dimensioni, il Colosseo e San Pietro.
L'Altare della Patria in un secolo di vita è divenuto il fulcro di celebrazioni pubbliche, scenografia universalmente nota, elemento dell'identità nazionale, icona dell'Italia.
Indosso un outfit in B&W, un mix&match di stampe check, che occupano un posto tra le tendenze più cool per la prossima primavera, mentre mi lascio affascinare,  tra i fasti di Piazza Venezia, dal bianco abbagliante dell'Altare della Patria, il monumento che rimane ancora oggi uno dei più importanti simboli patri della nostra Repubblica.

Il Vittoriano, is a monument built in honor of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy, located in Rome. In 1885 construction of the monument started after a design by Giuseppe Sacconi, winner of an architectural contest.  
At the center of the monument is the colossal equestrian statue of Victor Emmanuel, the "Father of the Nation".
At the foot of the statue is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, inaugurated in 1921. Guards of honor, alternatingly selected from the marine, infantry and air divisions, stand on guard here day and night.
The central theme of the entire monument is represented by two inscriptions on propylaea: "Patriae Unitati" and "Civium Libertati", "the unity of the Fatherland" and "To the freedom of citizens".
To the right and left of the main entrance are two fountains, allegorical representations of the two seas that border Italy. The left one depicts the Adriatic Sea and the right one is the Tyrrhenian Sea. 
The upper section of the monument consists of a massive curved colonnade with fifteen meters tall columns, framed on either side by small temple-like wings with a classical front. The design of the colonnade was likely inspired by the double colonnade of the Domus Augustae that overlooked the Circus Maximum in the Antiquity. Inside, the colonnade is decorated with murals and the frieze on top is adorned with statues that symbolize the regions of Italy.
It is the largest national monument, able to match, ambition and size, the Colosseum and St. Peter.The Altar of the Fatherland in a century has become the focus of public celebrations, universally known, scenography element of national identity, the icon of Italy.I'm wearing a B&W outfit, a mix &match of check prints, which occupy a place among the coolest trends for next spring, while I am enchanted by the dazzling white of the marble of the bombastic Vittoriano, the monument that remains today one of the most important symbols of Italian Republic.
