The massive history in Rome posters

To recap the history of the Italian capital would be a massive undertaking, so rich is its past. First and foremost, according to legend, Rome was founded in 753 BC by twin sons Romulus and Remus who were raised by a she-wolf. During its twelve-century history, the Roman civilization shifted from a simple monarchy to an oligarchic republic, and ultimately to an immense and powerful empire. Many remnants of this incredible past can be seen in our collection of Rome posters. You also cannot discuss this metropolis without mentioning the aspect of religion. During the reign of Augustus, Christ was born, and though Christians were persecuted until the 4th century, the new religion took hold and Rome became the main centre of Christianity. Reminders of this are omnipresent in the city, but also in our array of Rome posters. Interestingly, even though it was the seat of the papacy, during the Middle Ages Rome went into a steep decline. The city recovered spectacularly in the mid-15th century, and for over 200 years was embellished by the greatest artists of the Renaissance and the Baroque. For a city more than 2,500 years old, Rome posters also gives glimpses of the modern touch, as you can see in the Rome Italy Street Map sets.
