Welcome to Eden’s Wonders of the World! This article will provide facts, explore various places, and shed light on what life is like in Rome.
First, let’s delve into everybody’s favorite subject: food! We can begin with a yummy snack called a Maritozzo, which is a sweet bun sliced in half and stuffed with whipped cream. Another intriguing dish is the Supplí, which consists of risotto (gooey rice with cheese) fried dumplings filled with tomato sauce, cheese, or meat. Deviled eggs are also a popular choice.
Fun fact: In ancient Rome, eating exotic food was seen as a symbol of wealth.
If you find yourself in Rome, be sure to visit the Colosseum, a famous arena for gladiator fights. The Colosseum was initially built in 72 AD but was subsequently dismantled due to an earthquake. Another noteworthy location is the Pantheon, a temple where ancient Romans worshiped their gods and goddesses, such as Mars (the god of war), Pax (the goddess of peace), and Venus (the goddess of love). The Pantheon was constructed in 27 AD but was destroyed by fire in 80 AD, only to be rebuilt and later destroyed again in 110 AD (although it was rebuilt once more).
Fun fact: Rome boasts more fountains than any other city on the planet.
Life in Rome:
In ancient Rome, farming was the most common occupation. Nowadays, banking, finance, and real estate dominate the job market. Rome is a bustling city, and commuting is an integral part of everyday life. Children receive free education, and public school hours run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Fun fact: In ancient Rome, powdered mouse brains were used as toothpaste.
And there you have it! The wonderful world of Rome!
