Title of Cemetery

Pictures and text by Angelica Langley

Tthis memorial held a lot of controversy and seemed to stick out like a sore thumb amongst the ruins surrounding it. There were a lot of rules that one had to follow upon entering the memorial. The one that I remember the most was, "No Sitting." No one could sit on the steps in front of the Tomb of the Unknown soldier. This monument had a presence about it that shouted of its great importance. It was built in remembrance of Italy's first King at the time of their unification, Victor Emmanuel II. The photos were taken in May of 2008.
