Rome is the capital and largest city in Italy. The city has a long history as one of the most influential cities in European history and historically has been a center of political power (first as the capital of the Roman Empire and later as the seat of power of the Roman Catholic Church), and also possesses a rich cultural history.
Rome is listed as a Janus stronghold in The Black Book of Buried Secrets. It also served as a Tomas stronghold in 1960, when the city was selected to host that year's Summer Olympics.
