The construction of this building of high white limestone of 81 m was decided in 1878 to commemorate the memory of Vittorio Emanuele II, the architect of the Italian unity. Inaugurated in 1911, its aesthetics, for the Piedmontese builders, wanted to express the new fate of Rome, became since 1870 the capital of the kingdom of Italy. Since 1921, this altar of the Homeland shelters the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
