They call this a wedding cake of a building.  And that’s actually an insult — the Italians hate this building.  It is the tomb built for King something or other on the Piazza Venezia.  I like it.  One sunny day,  they actually opened it up for i turisti.  There are actually no public innards to it.  It is all stairs and show.  Oh,  and some hapless sailors who have to stand guard 24 hours a day.  I read once they have a high rate of suicide.

Not very cakey sounding!
