The Democracy Monument was built in 1939 in honor of the 1932 Revolution which resulted in absolute monarchy and established the First Constitution of Siam. The monument is characterized by symbolism. For example, all four wings are 24 meters tall which symbolizes June 24, when the Constitution was signed. The monument was designed by Italian immigrant Corrado Feroci, who was invited by King Rama VI to help develop the Western style of art in Thailand. After Corrado got Thai citizenship, he changed his name to Silpa Bhirasi. The monument itself is surrounded by traffic, so it is quite dangerous for those who want to see the monument or for numerous tourists. The city government has been trying to figure out how to make sightseeinf of the monument safer for years, and one of the ideas is to build a underground passageway.
