This Day in History

Legend has it that on April 21, 753 B.C., Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus, twin brothers nursed by a she-wolf. From its mythical beginnings, Rome grew to become the heart of an empire that would shape the course of Western civilization for centuries to come. This day is celebrated in Italy as Natale di Roma, commemorating the birth of a city that would become synonymous with architectural grandeur, political power, and cultural dominance.
