Happy Birthday Rome!

On 21 April Rome celebrates its birthday!

Legend has it Rome was founded in 753BC by Romulus and Remus  – the twins were the sons of the god Mars and were abandoned by the River Tiber. The story tells that they were found by a she-wolf who suckled them  – and they decided to found a city on the site where she found them.

The Circus Maximus and the Colosseum are at the centre of the celebrations, which also include a parade.

Rome is not the only important birthday on 21 April – Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th birthday today. London, too, will be celebrating.

Happy Birthday! – Tanti Auguri!
