This typewriter was made for a particular person.
This typewriter is massive. It’s the biggest typewriter I’ve ever seen in my life.
This typewriter, unlike other typewriters, is definitely not something people would just ignore.
This typewriter is hard to miss.
This typewriter is different than most of its kind in Italy.
This isn’t your typical typewriter that gets antiquated.
This typewriter, because of how it is made, will never fade with age.
This typewriter can be blindingly bright.
This typewriter goes by the name Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II.
This typewriter, you may be able to figure out by now, is hated by the Romans.
That is not because this typewriter can’t actually type or write, but because of its pompous name and presence, its sheer volume, and how differently it was made and designed.
To avoid calling it by its actual name, the Romans gave it unflattering nicknames such as “The Wedding Cake”, “The False Teeth”, or “The Typewriter”.
As a tourist, I love this typewriter.
