Across the river in the middle of a roundabout is well worth seeing. The Victory Monument is a monument in Bolzano, northern Italy, erected on the personal orders of Benito Mussolini in South Tyrol, which had been annexed from Austria after World War I. The...More

We were a little put off by the fact Mussolini had this built, really why? A sore thumb in our opinion but eh someone else may think it great.
