CCR Walks: Risorgimento Museum at Piazza Venezia - February 7, 2016

February 1861 marks the institution of Italy's first National Parliament. People are often surprised to find that, inspite of its glorious past, Italy was one of the latest among Western Europe's countries to achieve unity. Italy's struggle for independence is illustrated by a series of sometimes curious, sometimes poignant mementos, in one of the city's lesser-known museums, located in the huge Monument to Victor Emanuel II overlooking Piazza Venezia.
