Historical past

Today the area of the "Repubblica Italiana" was the main area of the Roman Empire in ancient times, already with Rome as its capital.
Already in pre-Roman times Italy was an important European cultural center. In the Renaissance, in the 14th and 15th centuries, different powers developed in the country, with an enormous economic and cultural advantage, especially the cities of Florence, Venice and Milan.
Until 1946 an Italian monarch ruled in Italy. By a popular vote, however, the monarchy was abolished and the proclamation of the present Italian Republic came.
