Christmas Sunset In Piazza Della Libertà

It is the heart of San Marino political life and its history. The Palazzo Pubblico stands on the so-called "Pianello", or Piazza della Libertà. It stands on the site of the Domus Comunis Magna, built between 1380 and 1392 and sheltered several times.

In the second half of the nineteenth century the Palazzo Vecchio had the appearance of a seventeenth-century building: on 17 May 1884 the foundation stone of the current Palazzo was laid out, designed by the Roman architect Francesco Azzurri, president of the Accademia di San Luca in Rome , by local stonecutters directed by the San Marino master builder Giuseppe Reffi, using stones extracted from the Titano quarries.
The inauguration took place on 30 September 1894, the speaker of the ceremony was Giosuè Carducci who on that occasion pronounced the famous speech on "perpetual freedom".

More About 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.Text by Steve Smith.
