Reception inside an horse belly!

The horseback statue of Vittorio Emanuele II at the Vittoriano is 12 meters high and stands out with its mass at the center of the monument itself. To realise it 50 tons of bronze were used. To celebrate the visit of the king Vittorio Emanuele III it was decided to organise a reception inside the immense belly of the horse: twenty people were accommodated inside! It was a memorable reception as the old pictures still display.
