The Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument of Victor Emmanuel II) or Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) is a monument to honour Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy. It is located in Rome, Italy. It occupies a site between the Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill. The monument holds the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with an eternal flame, built under the statue of Italy after World War I.

Piazza Campo dei Fiori (or Campo de' Fiore) is a rectangular piazza near Piazza Navona in Rome. Campo dei Fiori, translated literally from Italian, means "field of flowers." The name, no longer appropriate, was first given during the Middle Ages when the area was actually a meadow. The picture just catches a bit of the Piazza and the open air market that is held there daily.
