SPQR

Senatus Populusque Romanus, (il Senato e il Popolo Romano).

Il Senato e il popolo erano le figure che rappresentavano il potere della Repubblica nella Roma antica.

La scritta SPQR è talmente diffusa in città che è possibile trovarla ovunque: nei reperti archeologici, sui tombini, alle fermate degli autobus, sui portoni di nobili dimore...

Ieri Roma ha compiuto 2764 anni!
Auguri Roma!


P.S. Vi aspetto ogni lunedì per il Monday night Shot
Senatus Populusque Romanus, (the Senate and Roman people).

The Senate and the people were the figures representing the power of the Republic in ancient Rome.

The writing SPQR is so widespread in the city that you can find it everywhere: in archaeological finds, on manhole covers, at bus stops, on gates of noble mansions...

Yesterday in Rome made 2764 years!
Congratulations to Rome!


P.S. See you every monday for the Monday night Shot!
