The Vittoriale degli Italiani is the citadel at Gardone Riviera where Gabriele D'Annunzio arrived in 1921, to set up his last home, conceived as a mausoleum for his artistic and heroic ad adventures, with the help of the architect Gian Carlo Maroni.

The poet, an excellent collector and interior designer, designed the setting of the house, the Priora, where thousands of art objects, ceramics, silver and acrpets are collected. Nine hectares of garden sloping down to the lake are also part of the originator's scrupulous display.

Nature and Art become an unique element between apparitions, symbolism and curious persectives exalted by oleanders, palms, acanthus, rhododendrons, cypresses and olives, whilst the geometry of the terraces of an old lemon-house coexist with the sensuality of a rose garden.The open-air theatre, framed by nature, is now the seat of a prestigious theatrical summer season.

Located just below the amphitheater there is the museum ''Secret D'Annunzio'', D'Annunzio's military experience is shown in the ''D'Annunzio Eroe Museum'', in the wing kwoun as Schifamondo.
The garden also houses epic memories: the massive rocks fallen from the mountains during the great battles, the motorboat MAS from the ''Beffa di Buccari'', the Gardens, the sacred wood, the Communal Assembly, where D'Annunzio celebrated the commemorative of war experiences with his companions. The eye is attracted towards the astounding prow of the Battleship Puglia into the garden, reaching out to the lake.
