Vittoriale degli Italiani

Gabriele D'Annunzio had the "Vittoriale degli Italiani" built between 1921 and 1938 by the architect Gian Carlo Maroni, who had the task to "enclose his memories in a stone custody".
The buildings are sourrounded by a stone wall with streets and squares.


The visit:

just after the double entrance arc, facing the Garda Lake, there's the anfitheatre, home to the theatre season.
Two squares, Esedra square and Dalmata square lead to the Prioria, a large collection of art pieces, which reflect the artistic taste D'Annunzio had.
There's also a library with over 30.000 books.

The Schifamondo Wing of the building features an Auditorium with the collection of photos and the SVA10 airplane, which fled over Wien(1910) and a didactic course on D'Annunzio and his military experiences.
Fountains, statues and gardens make this place a destination for thousands people every ear.
