Did you know that...
Rome was founded on April 21st, 753 BC. as recounted by the ancient Roman scholar Marcus Terentius Varro basing on the calculations carried out by his friend the astrologer Lucio Taruzio.
The legend narrates that Romolo founded the city becoming then the king. This date gave origin to the Roman chronology that the Latins would indicate with Ab Urbe condita, that is, “from the founding of the City”.
The birth anniversary of Rome is a laic recurring event which is still celebrated as a portrayal in costumes, cultural and recreational events.
