The Valtournenche is one of the most beautiful lateral valleys of Val d'Aosta, famous for being the Italian access way to Matterhorn, the "Cervino" mountain. The Valtournenche village is located in the upper part of the valley and together with Cervinia is one of the most important Italian resorts for ski and montaineering. In the 360 photo is the small central square with the town hall and the church. To be noticed the many plaques dedicated to the climbers born there and sometimes dead in the same mountains: names such as Carrel, Bich, Pellissier, etc are well known in the mountain's history. The small obelisk is a memorial for the village's soldiers who died in the two world wars.

Questa è una vista generale di Italy

The name "Italy" is shrouded in mystery; some etymologists trace it to a Greek word meaning "the land of young cattle."

Italy was fond of Jupiter and Mars from the very start, Jupiter for fatherly good luck and Mars for war!

But it all began with Rome. Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus who were sons of Rhea and Mars.

The twins were abandoned at birth out of a fear that they would grow up and later overthrow Amelius, usurper of their grandfather's rightful throne.

Wrongful mis-doings most foul! Treachery and sabotage!! HOW would these two blessed infants make their way in such a world?

As it turns out, the twins didn't have to make their way very far, because one of them killed the other one and then they weren't twins anymore. But that happens later.

First they got rescued by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk and raised them as her own until they were discovered by the shepherd Faustulus.

Faustulus fed them meat and bread and also raised them as his own until they were old enough to return to Amelius and hack him up as planned. They reinstated the grandfather Numitor to his rightful throne and went off to celebrate by starting a town of their own.

They chose a hilly area where the mama wolf had saved them from certain death in the barren wilderness and began scouting locations.

Romulus liked one hill. Remus liked another. The circle of crows like Romulus' hill, so Romulus killed Remus and named the town after himself. Thus Rome was born and Italy with it.
