The Victory Monument is a monument in Bolzano, northern Italy, erected on the personal orders of Mussolini after the annexation of the South Tyrol after World War I. The 19 metre wide Victory Gate was designed by architect Marcello Piacentini and substituted the former Austrian Kaiserjäger monument, torn down in 1926–27. Its construction in Fascist style, displaying lictorial pillars, was dedicated to the “Martyrs of World War I”.
