The Accordion

Also coined " zuppa inglese ", a spongy Italian dessert cake, it is too big, too pompous, too white, and required the destruction of historic medieval buildings in its construction. The nickname "the typewriter" was a contribution of U.S. occupation soldiers in WWII, and the name stuck with the locals.

The Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument of Victor Emmanuel II) or Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) or "Il Vittoriano" is a monument to honour Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy, located in Rome, Italy. It occupies a site between the Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill. The monument was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi in 1885; sculpture for it was parceled out to established sculptors all over Italy, such as Angelo Zanelli.
