Vittoriano: One Roman Monument, Many Names

One of Rome‘s most recognizable monuments goes by many names – some official, some less so. Its official moniker is the Vittorio Emanuele II Monument, it’s more commonly known simply as the “Vittoriano.” Many Romans dislike the monument’s design, however, so you may also hear it referred to as “The Typewriter,” “The Wedding Cake” or even “The False Teeth.” Like it or hate it, the Vittoriano is hard to miss.
