Victory Lighthouse, Italy

A truly magnificent structure.
At 68 metres, Vittoria dwarfs Slangkop (South Africa's tallest), and the copper version of Giovanni Mayer's Winged Victory statue is just the cherry on top.

The fact that the lighthouse aides navigation on the seas at night comes as no surprise to me. What I do find notable is the fact that it was built to commemorate the Allies' fallen sailors of World War I.

The construction project was completed on 24 May 1927 and the lighthouse is still being used today.
