Things to see
In terms of aesthetic, the piazza blends several types of Italian architecture from the 19th century and Mussolini’s time. In fact, Mussolini held many of his speeches in this square. The construction of the whole Piazza Venezia required the demolition of ancient Roman ruins as well as several Medieval buildings, causing great controversy from start to finish. Many Roman citizens nowadays have given the piazza and monument amusing but rather unflattering nicknames.
