It was built by the architect Guido Cirilli between 1927 and 1930, and officially inaugurated on November 3rd, 1932.
The monument, made of Istrian stone, consists of eight fluted columns, atop imposing stairs. The base is decorated with helmets and swords, which symbolize defense and offense. A small altar lies in the center.
Verses of the song “All’Italia” by Giacomo Leopardi are engraved in the monument:
“You, most blessed of all,
who each offered yourself to the enemy lance,
for love of her who gave you to the light”
The most important national holidays are celebrated here, such as Liberation Day and Republic Day.
