What people are saying:

To commemorate the heroes who died during the First World War, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was added under the base of the Victor Emmanuel II Memorial Hall in 1921, and the body of an unknown soldier was placed in it. People usually call the monument the monument to the unknown hero. In front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, there are two torches that shine day and night. During the Italian National Day every year, a ceremony is held here, and the President of the Italian Republic personally presides over the laying of wreaths to the unknown heroes. When the heads of state visit, they usually pay tribute to the altar with flowers.
