  • The capture of Rome known as the breach of Porta Pia was the episode of the risorgimento that stable l annexation of Rome to the Kingdom of Italy on 20 September 1870. Today you can find a beautiful Memorial. Not to be missed

  • 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
