The Romans knew of seven bright objects in the sky, the Sun, the Moon and five planets and they named them after their most important gods. The world has set its understanding of its universe by Rome’s compass for millennia.
The seat of Roman imperial power became the center of the church and also the center of western civilization.
“Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble; Ancient footprints are everywhere...”
- Bob Dylan
Roman cuisine is based on what is fresh and in season at the moment. In the spring, fresh porcini mushrooms and zucchini blossoms are on the menu.
