dc.descriptionClose view of the large bronze equestrian statue of Vittorio Emanuele II; The first Italian king is honored by this mixed [interpretation of ] Hellenistic-Roman [styles]. Sacconi won the second competition in 1884 for this design. (The first competition, won by a French architect, occasioned much debate.) A number of buildings were demolished to provide space for the structure, which includes an altar to the fatherland and a large bronze equestrian statue of Vittorio Emanuele II. Quadrigae are on the tops of the two small temples at each side. Source: Digital Imaging Project, Mary Ann Sullivan, Bluffton University; http://www.bluffton.edu/~sullivanm/ (accessed 2/14/2008)en_US
