Culture Rome

Rome is the capital city of Italy and the Italian region Latium. It is on the Tiber River and has 2.8 million people. An estimate by the OECD put the number of people of the city area of Rome at 3.47 million. The enclave Vatican City is in the north-we.

History According to legend, Rome was started on April 21, 753 BC/BCE by Romulus. He killed his twin brother named Remus, with whom he had been raised by a wolf, and became the first king of Rome. After Romulus, who among other things created the Senate, there were, according to legend, six more kings: Numa Pompilius, Tullo Ostilio, Anco Marzio, Tarquinius Priscus, Servius Tullius, and Tarquinius Superbus. At the end of the age of monarchy, began the Republican era, during which Rome, by way of increasing expansion, faced several conflicts: in 390 BC, after struggles with neighbouring peoples, the town was invaded by Gauls and between the third and second century AD, fought against the rival Carthage, which then was captured and destroyed by the Roman army. Only with Julius Caesar in the first century BC, did the city began to grow significantly, especially toward the Campo Marzio, at the north of Capitol, and its domain was extended to Britannia. Caesar was never crowned emperor, a title which, however, fell to his adopted son Octavian who took the throne under the name of Augustus. Augustus "found a city of bricks and left it of marble" and its predecessors were no less: there was no emperor who enriched its city with new monuments, temples and triumphal arches. With the decline of the Roman Empire, the city declined in importance and fell into ruin. Pope Gregory I created major reforms for the people. The economy of the former capital was a turning point: we can say that from that moment on, the city was ruled by the pope, and soon also became the capital of a state, the Papal States, which remained active until the nineteenth century. Even popes, like the emperors, became richer over the centuries. The city of monuments and churches was called the "capital of Christendom", since here stood and still stands the Basilica di San Giovanni Lateran, the most important church of the world. The power of the Pope lessened along with its state. In fact, on 20 September 1870, Garibaldi's army, which had the task of uniting all of Italy under the crown of Savoy, entered the city through a breach opened in the walls at Porta Pia and, the same year, Rome became the capital of the newborn state.

Rome today Rome is a major European political and cultural center, containing the HQ headquarters of FAO. It is home of the pope and was one of the most powerful cities of antiquity (the old world). It currently contains numerous museums, basilicas and palaces, such as the Colosseum.

Geography Rome stands on predominant hills, with an area of 1285.31 kilometers ². The city is crossed by two rivers: the Tiber, which runs from east to west, and the Aniene, which runs from north-east to north – within the city, it flows into the Tiber. Rome was built on Sun Hill, later named Palatine. It grew and is now built on seven principal hills:       

Palatine Aventine Capitoline Quirinal Viminal Esquiline Caelian

Education Rome is an educational place in Italy. The children in Rome have to start school from the age of six until 14. This takes them to the end of junior high school. Rome has the biggest university in Italy and it is named University of Rome. It was created in 1303. About 200,000 students go to study at this university.

Naples Naples is a southern Italian city with a port. It faces the Mediterranean Sea. Its name in Italian is Napoli which came from its Greek name Neapolis, meaning new city. Ancient Greeks settled Naples in the 6th Century B.C. There were so many Greeks there, the Romans called it Magna Graecia, which means "Greater Greece." Later the Romans conquered the southern Italy and took Naples. When the Roman Empire fell to invaders in the west, Naples came under the rule of the Byzantines. The Byzantines ruled the Greekspeaking Eastern Roman Empire based in Greece and also in what is today called Turkey. Naples became independent later and but was combined with the Kingdom of Sicily during the Middle Ages. By 1500 it was ruled by Aragon, which was a kingdom in western Spain. Later Naples became part of Spain when Aragon and the other kingdom in Spain called Castile became one country. Naples was part of this Kingdom of Spain for over 300 years. Then it was conquered by the Italian kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont in 1861. That kingdom became known as Italy. Naples was heavily bombed when Italy fought in World War Two, since British/American armies tried to capture it. Today Naples is the capital of Campania and the largest city in southern Italy. It has a population of about 1 million. 300,000 people live in the area around Naples (including the habitans of Naples). It is an important city for tourists. The average temperature and in the summer is 24°C. In the winter, the average can be as low as 8°C. There is one airport in the city, Naples International Airport at Capodichino.

Benevento

Benevento Benevento is a city and comune of Campania, Italy, capital of the province of Benevento, 50 kilometres (31 mi) northeast of Naples. It is situated on a hill 130 metres (430 ft) above sealevel at the confluence of the Calore Irpino (or Beneventano) and the Sabato. It is also the seat of a Roman Catholic archbishop. Benevento occupies the site of the ancient Beneventum, originally Maleventum or still earlier Maloenton. The "-vent" portion of the name probably refers to a market-place and is a common element in ancient place names. The Romans theorized that it meant "the site of bad events", from Mal(um) + eventum. In the imperial period it was supposed to have been founded by Diomedes after the Trojan War. Due to its artistic and cultural significance, the Santa Sofia's Church in Benevento has been recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a group of seven inscribed as Longobards in Italy. Places of the power (568-774 A.D.).

Europe What do we know about Europe? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Europe is a continent, the western part of Eurasia. It is not part of Asia, because of a traditional eastern boundary that includes the Ural Mountains in Russia and the Bosporus in Turkey, and from Africa by the Mediterranean Sea to Balkans. The Atlantic Ocean is to the west of Europe. There are over 50 countries in Europe. The European Union is made up of most of the countries in Europe. Europe is named after a person in Greek mythology called Europa. She was said to have been abducted to Crete by Zeus. The name was later used for Greece. Then as the rest of the area we call Europe started to have cities and empires, the whole area West of the Ural Mountains became known by the same name.

History The history of Europe is long and has many turns. Individual specific 'eras' - this is the term meaning long amounts of specific time - can be mentioned:            

Pre-historic (Paleolithic, Mesolithic Neolithic) - 2,600,000 years ago to 5000 Ancient Greek Civilisation (Minoan, Classical, Hellenistic) - 3000-100 BC Roman Civilisation Medieval Civilisation (early, high, late) 400 AD-1500 AD Early Modern Era (Renaissance, Reformation, Age of Discovery, French Revolution and Napeoleonic Wars) 1500-1800 Industrialisation 1800-1914 World War I - 1914-1918 Interwar Period - 1918-1939 World War II - 1939-1945 Cold War - 1945-1989 Contemporary era - 1989-2008[source?] Post-Contemporary era - 2009-2011
