  • It is quite unusual to meet a lighthouse in the center of the land, albeit on a hill.... But where is the sea? As it turns out, this lighthouse was given to Rome by Italian immigrants from Argentina for helping the Garibaldians in the war against their dictator. From here is a very beautiful view of the Eternal City. Recommend.

  • Located in the Colle del Gianicolo, this lighthouse, built in 1911, was a gift from the Italians who emigrated to Argentina.

  • It is also called the Lighthouse of Rome. It is not for navigation, since the sea and coasts are far away. It is one of the most well-known monuments of the Gianicolo Walk, dating back to 1911 and is the work of Manfredo Manfredi. With classic shapes, it is 20 meters high and is made of fine white stone. It is placed in the highest place of the park, the one that was the scene of clashes with the French for the defense of the Roman Republic in 1849. A tricolor light stream once illuminated everything around, while in our time it is only lit, for some national events. The Italians of Argentina in 1921, also gave away the first transatlantic telegraph cable connection. That cable came to Anzio. Then came TheItalcable.
