Love at the Altar of Father Land.
There are very many beautiful sculptures at Vittoriano, in Piazza Venezia, but this compassionate kiss, portraying a woman, graciously bending to kiss a wounded soldier, is my absolute favorite. Our Rome by Day, Beauty and History tour, always involves a visit to this monumental building in the very center of Rome.
What is Vittoriano
The Vittoriano, a monument celebrating King Vittorio Emanuele, is strategically positioned in between the ancient Roman Forums, Piazza Venezia and the Campidoglio (Rome Capitol Hill).
