Italy is a very diverse and lively place that I have always wanted to travel to. As a history major I love all the history of Rome. Rome has a history that is covered in blood, lost and beauty. One of the most fascinating things that I have found about Rome was the legend of its founding. In the legend the city was said to be a product of twin brothers, Romulus and Remus. These children were abandoned by there family near the great river Tiber, were they were found by a she-wolf and she gave the children her milk. The boys were found by a poor farmer and soon grew in to brave strong young men. They were natural leaders and set out to start their own city. There is of course more to the myth but I am not going to tell the whole story. This myth can still be seen in many statues through out Rome. One of the most famous one is Capitoline Wolf or Lupa Capitolina, which shows both Romulus and Remus drinking milk from the she-wolf. It was first said to be housed in the pope’s palaces (Lateran) in the 14 or 15 century. It is now in the Capitoline Museums in Rome. When I think about this myth it shows to me the respect and pride the Italian people have for their history.
