Arco del Valentino


Though it's simply called "Arco del Valentino" because at the entrance to Valentino's park (at the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II side), this is the Monument to Artillery Force by Pietro Canonica (1930).

Sebbene venga semplicemente chiamato l'Arco del Valentino perché all'ingresso del Parco del Valentino dalla parte di corso Vittorio Emanuele II, questo è il Monumento all'Arma di Artiglieria di Pietro Canonica (1930).

I can see all the artillery on the side of the arch, indeed. Your city does a wonderful job at highlighting its landmark at night.

I like the angle of this shot - the composition.
The street lights (to the left) are coming straight at you in a line but the monument is canted; not facing dead-center. Very nice lighting, as usual!!
