History of ITALIA

The history of Italy is closely linked to that of Western culture and the history of Europe. Many of the main historical events in the Western world, as well as many of the achievements that have conditioned universal culture, have taken place in the country or have been carried out by its peoples.

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, Italy suffered a series of Germanic invasions, alternated with Byzantine and Frankish attempts to rebuild the unity of the Roman Empire. Rome, seat of the papacy and source of imperial legitimacy, was in those times a focus that attracted figures such as Justinian I and Charlemagne.

The struggle between the temporal imperial power, which included Italy, and the spiritual papal power, which was based in Rome, had special political repercussions in Italy.
