Photos from Italy


Linguists think that the name 'Italy' comes from ancient Oscan V═TELI┌, meaning 'land of young cattle', as Italy was a land rich in cattle since ancient times. Italian history goes back to the 9th century BC, thanks to the earliest accounts of Italic tribes : the Oscans, Umbrians and Latins. Later the Latin culture became dominant, as Rome emerged around 350 BC.
