Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, Rome

The Victor Emmanuel Monument holds the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with an eternal flame, built under the statue of Italy after World War I following an idea of General Giulio Douhet. The body of the unknown soldier was chosen on October 26, 1921 from amongst 11 unknown remains by Maria Bergamas, a woman from Gradisca d’Isonzo whose only child was killed during World War I. In this image you can see several students taking measurements and composing sketches of the intricate architectural details.
