  • the history of Italy also lies in this beautiful monument unfortunately plunged into a chaotic road.

  • You can see it is I wonder if there worth a go all the way and only the appearance, but think of the architecture of Michelangelo's teacher. And I think if from the Termini train station, not far from Piazza Venezia is a little distance.

  • The name "revocation Breccia di Porta Pia" is not simply the Porta Pia, designed by Michelangelo. It is something more. The gap in the gate of Porta Pia (break in the Aurelian wall around these gates) connected with the most important event in the history of Italy Risorgimento-era, when the Italian army troops attacked the forces of the defense of the Pope. The Pope's defenders were in the vast minority, and after a few hours of Rome fell. It happened on September 20 1870 onwards, this date is the day the final unification of Italy, and can be found in any city street Venti Settembre.
