Marsique the war began after the revolt Asculum late 91 BC The people of Picenium, Samnium and Apulia rebelled against the authority of Rome and the injustice of the Senate. Rome refused to give citizenship to allied Italian cities which revolted in 90 BC, forming the Confederation of Marsi, composed of eight people in central Italy. They chose a capital Corfinium, they renamed Italia. This is the beginning of the Social War. The Senate granted the right of citizenship to some allies to try to break the League, but the following year, Rome was shaken, beaten consuls. Lucius Porcius Cato was killed fighting the Italians.
