Soiano Castle

Soiano, Italy

Soiano Castle overlooks the village of Soiano del Lago. It was built already in the 10th century against the Hungarian invasions and was also the meeting place for the heads of families in Chizzoline and Soiano. In order to oppose the feared Savoy army a further gate was constructed to close the castle. Currently the manor is once again the property of the Commune.

La costruzione , di aspetto decisamente medievale sì presenta parzialmente restaurato con delle bellissime mura Merlate, al suo interno vengono allstiti ed organizzati spettacoli di vario genere , a cominciare da concerti di ogni tipo tenuti da artisti di vario genere , oltre che spettacoli teatrali e proiezioni di film , a volte anche per bambini. All'interno delle Mura possiamo trovare anche un fornito servizio di ristoro con bevande , che funziona perfettamente , per tutto il periodo estivo , durante gli spettacoli.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
