The rise of the great city in Italy dates back in the early centuries. The romans had great passion for family ties and urbanization (Manfra 123). The Rome city emerged as a result of three main reasons, the presence of the hard-working citizens of Circa, the fertility of the lands and the existence of water for agriculture. In addition, to the three reasons, the Italian peninsula being situated in a strategic position. The city of Rome emerged farming activities.
Moreover, the strategic location made it accessible by the Rome citizens and other Europe city states. For instance, the central location of the city made it easily accessible by the Greeks who settled and see their culture intermingle with the Romans giving rise to early civilization in Europe as a continent. The Greek and Roman minds joined ideas to boost thoughts of developments. On the other hand, the presence of abundant food grown in the fertile soils contributed to the high population in the extreme large city states. The cities then merged to form one great Rome empire (Manfra 123).
Nonetheless, the Rome empire developed the laws and government leading to stability in the empire. It is from the civilization of the ancient Rome that gave rise to the laws, arts, religion, philosophy and administration that most western countries have their grounds based upon (Manfra 123). The political influence and success was as a result of military skills that saw the empire conquer neighboring locations such as Mediterranean seas and from the raids of neighbors they obtained slaves and wealth that helped the empire expand its territories.
However, in the 14TH century the expansion of empire resulted to the rise of the republican governance that degenerated the empire into pieces and its collapse. The republicans argued that there was need for the original inhabitants to rule Rome city states. These wars led to civil wars and the fall of Rome.
