With an estimated population of 2,600,000 inhabitants , it owes its name to Romulus although more recent studies comment that the name of the city is due to the meaning of "river", so Rome would mean in that case "the town on the river" .

According to legend, the city was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus in 753 BC. The success of the city depended on its military conquests, the great control over the commerce in the Mediterranean and the knowledge of the neighboring cultures (like the Struscans and the Greeks). The population at that time exceeded one million inhabitants.
