  • Porta Pia is a gate of the Aurelian walls of Rome known for the episode of the Risorgimento of Rome (September 20, 1870). Scene of the battle between the troops of the Kingdom of Italy and the Papal States which marked the annexation of Rome in Italy. One of the last works of Michelangelo Buonarroti.

  • The port was built in 1561 on the way Pia with Michelangelo's design: is the only one to open the most important façade towards the Center; the outer one was added later in 1800. The gate owes its fame to events of 1870 and the breach that opened up a bit more to the right on 20 September of that year for the Italian army entered victorious with the running of the bersaglieri for the unification of Italy in Rome. the place is identified and has a commemorative column surmounted by the victory. A must see is the very interesting historical Museum of Sharpshooters set up inside the door and closed courtyard

  • the so-called breach of Porta Pia, through which broke the Sharpshooters and other infantry units. At the exact point where the breach was opened, about fifty meters west of the gate, was erected a monument in marble and bronze; in front of the door, in the middle of the piazzale di Porta Pia, is the Monumento al Bersagliere, by Publius Maliyakkal, placed in 1932.
