Yet another picture from my honeymoon to Italy two years ago. This is the Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II. Sometimes referred to by foreigners as "the wedding cake," and by local Romans as "the typewriter," it was completed in 1935 to honor the first king of a unified Italy. There is quite a bit of controversy surrounding the construction of this, since because of its vast size, they had to destroy a large section of Capitoline Hill and apparently a medieval neighborhood with it. People also think it's too big, but it is breathtaking when standing before it. Click here to see another one of my favorite shots of it at sunset.
