Emil Victor Langlet designed Norway's parliament building "Stortinget" in neo-Romanesque style during his studies in Italy. From 1951 to 1959, it was restored and a new building added. The National Assembly is also known to most Norwegians as "Løvebakken", meaning Lion’s Hill, because the main stairway is flanked by stone lions.
