  1. The name says everything………… Rome, the ETERNAL CITY!! For more than two thousand years the city surpassed crazy Emperors (Like Caligula and Nero), received famous lovers of emperors (like Cleopatra), lived under despot popes, resisted barbarian's invasions and their lootings, reborn many times from the ashes of destructions and famine, watched the black plague kill most of its population, etc………….. And yet survives and remains ROME!!

  2. Cities built long before cars had ever been thought of have narrow streets and many buildings closer together because back then, walking and riding quadrupeds (probably usually horses) were the only modes of transportation anyone could seriously be aware of. Nobody really assumed he or she ever had to leave his or her neighborhood for anything or that a narrow street would be dangerous for anything. Cars and their needs couldn’t be foreshadowed just like whatever has had to do with my autism (like my feeling somewhat discriminated about having a longer way to go to elementary school or feeling disappointed about not knowing anybody when it was time for me to start middle school).

  3. The Greeks say they were not from Italy, because there were not Italian. They were from Egypt, Persia to Greece to Italy than across Europe.
    Europe has many colors and faces…Europe made the world we live in today.

  4. I love Italy in particular and Europe in general so much! I will visit Italy and Europe in the future! ❤🇮🇹

  5. Rome is an incredible city.I believe that you can make great videos about Bucharest,Timişoara,Iaşi,Braşov,Sibiu,Constanţa,Oradea,Lodz,Napoli,Bologna,Sevilla,Porto,Lille,Marseille,Nisa,Leeds,Dresda etc.

  7. The energy in Rome is just incredible. You can actually feel the history that went on there. It’s just a special special place!!

  8. Rome has had so much influence it is unbelievable! Apart from Catholicism, art and musical styles, the Latin language that used to be spoken there now has over 800 million native speakers in the form of its descendant languages. From Manila to Montreal, Mexico City to Paris, Rome's cultural influence can be felt. It is the warm culture that people have come to associate with family, food and faith.

  9. Qualcuno sarà mai responsabile dei crimini degli italiani verso i serbi? 1999 da Avian volarono i primi aerei nel mio paese di Serbia dove uccisero centinaia di donne e bambini serbi! Gli italiani sanno se si sentono in colpa se stanno dormendo pacificamente!
    Sapete che nel 1942, quando gli ustascia, i musulmani ei croati, la cosiddetta legione nera cominciò a pulire la Bosnia orientale dal popolo serbo, da Sarajevo alla Drina, così che le donne e i bambini italiani non consentirono a migliaia di soldati italiani di attraversare il ponte verso l'alta quota. chi pagava oro e bestiame, rimaneva accanto al fiume il sonno da ubriaco e tutti erano dati a donne e bambini, 6.000 ragazze battevano le mani per 5-6 e saltarono nel fiume in modo che non si ammalassero agli ustascia e furono violentati anche se erano i non nuotatori si sono arresi.
