The elegant district of Vittoria lies towards Risorgimento Bridge on the left bank of the Tiber. It is characterised by small villas and palaces built after the international architectural competition as part of the 1911 Exhibition. Shaped like a star around Piazza Mazzini, Vittoria's main artery is Viale Mazzini. The square, designed by Raffaele De Vico in the form of an ancient nymphaeum, has a fountain in the center. The district church, the Cristo Re, was designed by Marcello Piacentini for whom a 15 meter-tall monument was erected in Piazza Mazzini. Some of the most noteworthy buildings in Vittoria are the 1920s Ircis building in Piazza Mazzini, the Allegri villa at 3 Via Nicotera, no. 46 Viale Carso (the house of sculptor Mistruzzi), and the ICP houses on Via Trionfale.
