Piazza Venezia

The square is named Venezia as the main palace has been, for centuries, the seat of the Ambassade of the Venetian Republic in Rome. The church at its side is dedicated to St. Mark. The palace has been also seat of the pope and, during the fascism, of the italian government.

In the southern side, there's the big Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II, dated around 1920, also known as The White Typewriter, or Altar of the Fatherland.

There is buried the Unknown Soldier, in honor of all the soldiers, who died in the First World War and were never identified.
