Monumento a Vittorio Emanuelle II - Rome



The Altare della Patria, also known as the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II ("National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II") or Il Vittoriano, is a monument built in honour of 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 eclectic structure was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi in 1885; sculpture for it was parceled out to established sculptors all over Italy, such as Leonardo Bistolfi and Angelo Zanelli. It was inaugurated in 1911 and completed in 1925. The Vittoriano features stairways, Corinthian columns, fountains, an equestrian sculpture of Victor Emmanuel and two statues of the goddess Victoria riding on quadrigas. The structure is 135 m (443 ft) wide and 70 m (230 ft) high. If the quadrigae and winged victories are included, the height reaches 81 m (266 ft). It has a total area of 17,000 square metres. The base of the structure houses the museum of Italian Unification. In 2007, a panoramic lift was added to the structure, allowing visitors to ride up to the roof for 360 degree views of Rome.

Lincoln Memorial - Washington D.C., U.S.A.



The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon; the designer of the primary statue – Abraham Lincoln, 1920 – was Daniel Chester French; the Lincoln statue was carved by the Piccirilli Brothers; and the painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin. Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations. The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, "The Gettysburg Address" and his Second Inaugural Address. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Like other monuments on the National Mall – including the nearby Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and National World War II Memorial – the memorial is administered by the National Park Service under its National Mall and Memorial Parks group. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since October 15, 1966. It is open to the public 24 hours a day. In 2007, it was ranked seventh on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.

Washington Monument - Washington D.C., U.S.A.



The Washington Monument is an obelisk on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., built to commemorate George Washington, once commander-in-chief of the Continental Army and the first American president. Standing almost due east of the Reflecting Pool and the Lincoln Memorial, the monument, made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss, is both the world's tallest stone structure and the world's tallest obelisk, standing 554 feet 7 11⁄32 inches (169.046 m) tall. It is the tallest monumental column in the world if all are measured above their pedestrian entrances, but two are taller when measured above ground, though they are neither all stone nor true obelisks. Construction of the monument began in 1848, and was halted from 1854 to 1877 due to a lack of funds, a struggle for control over the Washington National Monument Society, and the intervention of the American Civil War. Although the stone structure was completed in 1884, internal ironwork, the knoll, and other finishing touches were not completed until 1888. A difference in shading of the marble, visible approximately 150 feet (46 m) or 27% up, shows where construction was halted and later resumed with marble from a different source. The original design was by Robert Mills, but he did not include his proposed colonnade due to a lack of funds, proceeding only with a bare obelisk. Despite many proposals to embellish the obelisk, only its original flat top was altered to a pointed marble pyramidion, in 1884. The cornerstone was laid on July 4, 1848; the first stone was laid atop the unfinished stump on August 7, 1880; the capstone was set on December 6, 1884; and the completed monument was dedicated on February 21, 1885. It officially opened October 9, 1888. Upon completion, it became the world's tallest structure, a title previously held by the Cologne Cathedral. The monument held this designation until 1889, when the Eiffel Tower was completed in Paris, France. The monument was damaged during the 2011 Virginia earthquake and Hurricane Irene in the same year and remained closed to the public while the structure was assessed and repaired. After 32 months of repairs, the National Park Service and the Trust for the National Mall reopened the Washington Monument to visitors on May 12, 2014.

Epic Monuments of Buenos Aires



All of the biggest immigrant communities who shaped Buenos Aires on the time of its birth as a big city impregnated their pride in epic monuments. Along with them, also the mausoleums of the most important figures of the History of Argentina. But paradoxically, one of the most curious cases is the Statue Liberty, made by the same sculptor of the Statue of Liberty of New York, F.A.Bartholdi, but in a very smaller size:











The main concentration of these epic monuments lies at the parks of Palermo, being the most relevant the Monument to the Spanish, donated by that community on the Centenary of 1910, with motifs of the Work and the Constitution as the pillars of the nation and crowned by the Republic:










Just one block away is the Monument to Justo José de Urquiza, erected in 1958 and also with motifs of the Constitution:








The third part of this triad at the Sarmiento Avenue is the Monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi, an italian who helped in the independence wars of South America and in the reunification of Italy itself:








Also in these parks, you may find the Monuments to Nicolás Avellaneda, a former president of the country, the Monument to Carlos María de Alvear at Recoleta and the Monument to Artigas, the leader of the nation who lies in front of Argentina: Uruguay.

















A bit far from Palermo , into the heart of the city, is one of the biggest monuments of Argentina: the Monument to the Two Congresses, representing the Assembly of the Year XIII and the Congress of Tucumán:











Other amazing examples of the beauty of the monuments in the city are Fuente de las Nereidas in Puerto Madero, representing the Nereids who attended to the birth of the Goddess Venus, and the Monument to the Cid Campeador in the exact geographical center of Buenos Aires, who shows the soul of big metropoli the city had since late 1800s:











Ending with the series, the huge Monument to San Martín and the Independence Army at the San Martín Square in Retiro, with sculptures of the Cruces de los Andes and the Taking of Montevideo:











With his infinite vision, in Barrio Parque lies the "Abuelo Inmortal" (translated: "The Immortal Grandfather"), representing San Martin, the Liberator of Argentina, in his last years in this world. With his eternal look, he shows us how incredible it feels to be part of Argentina, now and ever:

National Flag Memorial - Rosario, Argentina





In order to commemorate the first time that the Argentine Flag was raised, an epic complex of monuments were built in the city of Rosario. Its architecture actually shares a lot of details with the architecture of Albert Speer (the architect of Adolf Hitler) and the buildings of Mussolini’s Italy. The complex consists in 4 areas: the Tower of the monument, the Civic Courtyard, the Triumphal Propylaeum and the bridge who connects it to the Cathedral and the Palace of the Lions.

Rio de Janeiro: Christ the Redeemer & Cerro Corcovado



Though it remains a bit hidden, the religious architecture of the Western World exceeds the cathedrals and temples and it reaches another kind of architecture who is related to the sculpture: the epic statues of Christ of the cities who are placed on montainous lands, specially in the Americas. Among the collection of this kind of statues, the most important one is, without a doubt, the Christ The Reedemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, situated at the top of the Morro Corcovado. It was built in the first half of the 20th Century, thanks to the donations of the people of the city, who also decided to open his arms in the final design. The Christ statue is nowadays, probably, the biggest icon of Brazil. It also managed to get two records: the biggest Art Deco statue and one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. However, maybe its biggest achievement is to have become the living icon of the presence of Brazil in the History of the Humanity.
