The Lazio region
The history of Ontario is deeply marked by the History of Rome, both for what this represents for the region as a millennial take place, both for what this story has led to the consolidation of temporal power of the Catholic Church, this millennium, and for the highly symbolic and ideological significance that Rome came to practice for the Kingdom of Italy and fascism, but also for the modern Italian Republic.
The historical phase is testified by the presence of various Indo-European peoples who settled in Lazio since the second millennium BC, including Latin (from which the region took no second name). But not only Latin but also Sabini, Volsci, Ernici, fair and Aurunci which in different ages settled in central and southern regions of Lazio, while in the northernmost part affirms the presence of the Etruscans, whose influence proved dominant until at least fifth century BC
From the fifth century BC to the first century BC the history of Latium is increasingly identified with the struggle for the dominance of Rome in relation to other populations, which floor plan will be subject, and assimilated Latin element. The last gasp of autonomy of these people came with the social war.
For the duration of the imperial Rome, Lazio enjoyed a position of general tranquility, interrupted only by sporadic wars for the conquest of the imperial purple. His role as a centre of empire was, however, increasingly reduced, marginalized, to other regions of the empire, until you get the episode of deposition of the last Western Emperor, Romulus Augustus by Odoacer in 476, to which reference is made to mark the end of empire.
The power vacuum in Lazio, after various events following the fall of the empire, was filled by the presence of the Catholic Church, whose story determined the history of Rome and the region until the capture of Rome in 1870.
From that moment the history of Latium is almost totally identified with the history of Rome as the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, with the exception of the period of the great reclamation of the Pontine Marshes, a saga that lasted a decade will mark the birth of new cities, before Littoria of all, today's Latin America, and the acquisition of new productive land in the region.
The Second World War through the region, making them pay high regard in terms of lives, both military and civilian. Relevant, in this view, were the fierce fighting that took place in the countryside of Cassino and the Allied landing at Anzio
Today's Rome reflects the stratification of the epochs of its long history, but also a large and modern metropolis. The large old town contains many ruins of ancient Rome, medieval remains are a few areas, there are many treasures from the Renaissance, many churches and baroque palaces, as many examples of Art Nouveau, neoclassical, modern, rational, and other artistic styles of the nineteenth and twentieth century, the city can be considered a sort of living encyclopedia of the last 3000 years of Western art.
The historical centre is identified with the limits of the ancient imperial walls. Some areas were reorganized after the unification (1880-1910, Rome, Umberto), and some additions and adjustments were made during the Fascist period, with the creation of the Via dei Fori Imperiali and Via della Conciliazione in front of the Vatican (for the construction of which a large part of the Village adjacent to it was destroyed), and the foundation of new neighborhoods (including Eur built in view of the Universal Exhibition of 1942), San Basilio, Garbatella, Cinecittà, Trullo, Quarticciolo, and, on the coast, restructuring of Ostia) and the inclusion of bordering villages (Labaro, Osteria del curate, Quarto Miglio, Capannelle, Pisana, Torrevecchia, Octavia, Casalotti). This resulted in an extension to the southeast, along the streets Tiburtina Prenestina Casilina, Appia Nuova. The city has passed the course dell'Aniene from both sides has gone toward the sea, north-west has incorporated Monte Mario. These expansions were needed to address the large population growth due to the centralization of the Italian state.
During World War II, Rome has suffered from heavy bombing (notably at San Lorenzo) and battles (Porta San Paolo, La Storia, "Via della Magliana") and was considered an "open city". However, Rome was spared the total destruction happened in Berlin or Warsaw. Rome fell to the Allies June 4, 1944 (same day of the massacre of La Storia).
After the war, Rome continued to expand because of increasing government and Italian industry, with the creation of new neighborhoods and suburbs and the urban layout as on the Institute for Popular Autonomous Case (designers Ing. Massimo Piacentini for the IACP and arch. Giovagnini Gustavo) to Garbatella: last coherent urban arrangement of the city of Rome. The current population is officially around 2.8 million, but on working days are estimated to exceed 3.5 million. It is a remarkable growth compared to the past, because the inhabitants were 138,000 in 1825, 244,000 in 1871, 692,000 in 1921 and 1,600,000 in 1961. All around the city has created a network of ever-expanding suburbs, which have created a series of social and economic problems.
Rome hosted the 1960 Olympics, using many ancient sites such as Villa Borghese and the Thermae of Caracalla as venues. For the Olympic Games were created new structures, like the great Olympic Stadium (which later was again renovated and expanded to accommodate the qualifiers and finals of World Cup football 1990 FIFA), the Olympic Village (designed to accommodate the athletes and transformed after the games in a residential neighborhood).
Many monuments of Rome were restored by the Italian state and the Vatican for the Jubilee of 2000.
Being the capital of Italy, Rome hosts all the principal institutions of the nation, as the Presidency of the Republic, the Government and the Ministries, Parliament, the main courts, and diplomatic delegations from all countries for the states of Italy and Vatican City (curiously, Rome hosts, in the Italian part of its territory, the Italian Embassy in Vatican City, the only case of an Embassy within the boundaries of his own country). Many international institutions have their headquarters in Rome. Cultural institutions, science and humanitarian such as the FAO.
Today, Rome is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world because of its immense archaeological and artistic treasures, as for its unique traditions and the beauty of its views and the villas. Among his most interesting resources, there are plenty of museums (the Capitoline Museums, the Vatican Museums, Galleria Borghese, and many others), churches, historic buildings, monuments and ruins of the Roman Forum and the Catacombs.
Among the hundreds of churches, Rome is home to the five major basilicas of the Catholic Church: St. Peter, St. Paul Outside the Walls, Santa Maria Maggiore, San Lorenzo fuori le Mura and San Giovanni in Laterano, the seat of the diocese of Rome and the spiritual centre entire Catholic Church. The bishop of Rome is the Pope, assisted by a vicar (usually a cardinal) for his pastoral work.
