    You've heard of Vittorio Emanuel 11?

    Vittorio Emanuel 11, Formia, Lazio.

    Favorite thing: The wonderful monument to V Emanuel 11 which takes up so much space in Rome? Well, in Formia, there is a monument to Vittorio Emanuel the first (so I was told)..........was this his Dad?.................... Not anywhere near as grand a monument although it appears to be the only monument in this park in Formia. I did try to find out more about it and gingerly asked a couple of men sitting next to it, about his history (the monument's that is). One replied in French.............whoops!...........then went for the Italian..................just as hard for me................so in halting English (talented man)....... he started telling me about the graffiti on it..................uh! So if anyone out there knows about it please feel free to let us know.

    Giuseppe has just mailed me that Vittorio Emanuelle the first is not the father of Vittorio Emanuelle the second.

    Just found this link with a little history.

    Fondest memory: I loved this little park and I used to sit here a lot waiting for my bus connection.

    The Mediterranean from Redentore, Formia.

    Favorite thing: Previous photo looking toward Mount Redentore from Formia..........this one from Mt. Redentore looking toward Naples.

    Fondest memory: There is stacks of history to be had here...........not only beautiful scenery. Formia is a town right on the Appian Way.

    From the same park..........a view of Formia

    Snap of Formia from bus stop park.

    Favorite thing: It would be hard for me to put my finger on the one thing that makes Formia interesting to me, because I enjoyed it all.

    I really liked that as a stranger, I was treated as a member of their community and was therefore allowed to blend into the background.................which is not bad........i.e. the mountains with the view of the Mediterranean.

    Fondest memory: It feels like home and therefore must be my second home.
