Artillery Damage in Rome's Aurelian Wall at the Porta Pia from the September 20, 1870 Attack on Rome by the Garibaldi Masons

A marble and bronze monument was constructed at the exact point of the breach which you can still see today.  Interesting to see the damage from canons.  The Papal Zouave soldiers who were killed here defending the papacy and the holy city are buried in a vault at the Bones Church on the Via Veneto.
