Historical background


ROME

(330-348)

Rome was founded 21 April 753 BC by Varro (Ab Urbe Condita). The city, whose population has fluctuated between 400,000 and one million people to the High Empire, loses its importance from the second half of the third century. The choice of a new capital Constantine, from 326, dealt it a fatal blow from which the Urbs will not recover until the Renaissance. The city will still survive for nearly one hundred and fifty years, despite two bags: those of 410 and 455. Rome is no longer in Rome.
