Happy birthday Rome!

Happy birthday Rome!

“Alme Sol, curru nitido diem qui promis et celas aliusque et idem nasceris, possis nihil urbe Roma visere maius” Secular Hymn, Horace

O kindly Sun, in your shining chariot, who herald the day, then hide it, to be born again new yet the same, you will never know anything mightier than Rome!

Happy birthday Rome!
Founded on the 21st of April, 753 BC.
You’ve been sacked, invaded, and you’re still standing.
You’ve faced wars, fires, floods, epidemics and you’re still standing.
Those are very tough days, but you’ll recover.
Since you’re Rome, the Eternal City.
And we’ll be recovering with you, because we’re the Romans.
