The national solution recalls the solutions represented by the poet Virgil and his great epic, the Aeneid, written a generation previously in Rome. Virgil found the great Roman past in the Roman tradition, but followed Rome’s origins even further back into the past.

According to this narrative, the heroes of Troy, whose downfall Homer narrated, were the true ancestors of the Romans. One of them, Aeneas, was the forebear of the Roman kings.

    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang

    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but

  5. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video
    clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Superb blog!
