Reposted from @guptajighumnechale - The Arco della Pace (Arch of Peace) is a triumphal arch, initially built in the early nineteenth century as part of the 'Foro Bonaparte' - a modern version of a Roman Forum - to celebrate Napoleon's victories.
The emperor's ouster in 1814 brought a premature end to the construction of this forum, and the arch is one of only two completed structures.
Today the Arco della Pace stands at the center of a pedestrianized plaza, at the edge of the Sempione Park.
