Vittorio Emanuele II monument
Turin

Bronze and granite statue of king Vittorio Emanuele II, erected by architect Pietro Costa in 1899 after years of controversies between king Umberto I (who wanted and payed the monument) and the municipality of Turin.

Even now, citizens tend to ignore a monument they never really liked.

More About Turin

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
