Roma Umbertina – CCR Walk – February 12, 2011

In the first years after unification the Kings of Italy started leaving their mark on their new capital, especially King Umberto I, "il Re Buono" (right). The changes made then still heavily influence the way we perceive, live and move in and around Rome's historical centre. Starting at the Vittoriano, we will take a stroll through Rome looking at the impact of the Piedmontese Kings on the Eternal City.
