On the Janiculum Hill, with its breathtaking views of the innumerable domes and bell towers that pierce the city’s skyline, visit the church of San Pietro in Montorio, built on the site once thought to be where St. Peter was crucified and buried. See the Tempietto, a small shrine built by Bramante to mark the supposed site. The hill is also the site of the Gianicolense Mausoleum Monument (Mausoleo Ossario Gianicolense/ Monumento Ossario Gianicolense), built in 1941 to honor those fallen in the defense of Rome in the 19th century, as well as several foreign research institutions, including the American Academy in Rome.

The monument was created by Jacobucci in 1941 on the place where lost their lives numerous defenders of Rome (Caduti per Roma) in times of siege of 1849, raisings of 1867 and 1870.

On the top of the each side there is an inscription "Roma o Morte", i.e. "Rome or Death". In 1941, Mameli's remains were moved to Jacobucci's Monumento Ossario Gianicolense on Via Garibaldi, between the fountain of the Acqua Paola and the Church of Saint Peter in Montorio, on the Janiculum.

Inside of the sarcophagus in the center of the monument was buried Goffredo Mameli (1827-1849), the hero of Roman Republic. He is an author of Fratelli d'Italia, the poem which in 1946 became the hymn of Italy with the music of Michele Novaro. An altar in red granite of Baveno (on the Lago Maggiore) is surrounded by a four-sided portico in travertine without cover. Under the portico is a crypt with the memorial - burial chamber of the fallen, among whom are Goffredo Mameli and Righetto.
