About our Name
In Rome, ancient Mythology of Fratelli Roma tells the tale of twin brothers Romulus and Remus. The twin brothers were born of a virgin mother who was the daughter to the former King Numitor. The King’s brother Amulius had deposed Numitor to steal the crown and had ordered the twins to be killed for fear they would one day threaten his crown. They were left on the river Tiber to die. Tiberinus, god and father of the river saved the twin brothers by sending a she-wolf to suckle the twins in a cave that is now known as Lupercal and which has become a sacred and historic site for Roman people. They were raised as shepherds and become natural leaders, eventually learning of the past they re-joined with their grandfather to win back the crown. In founding the city that would become Rome they had an argument as to where the city should be sited, which led to Romulus killing Remus. Romulus then founded the City of Rome as it stands today and went on to Reign as many years as its first king.
