In legend, Romulus and Remus were born to the Roman god Mars and vestal virgin Rhea Silvia. As babies, Remus and his brother were cast into the River Tiber by their great-uncle Amulius but their cradle washed up near seven hills. There the boys were found and cared for by a she-wolf until they were later taken in by a shepherd who raised them as his own.
Eventually the pair discovered what Amulius had done and, with the help of locals, overthrew their great-uncle's city. The twins decided to establish a settlement of their own but the brothers quarreled over on which of the hills to build resulting in Romulus slaying Remus.
Behind the scenesEdit
The library plaque is a humorous reference to the fact that the library is in Venice, which the founders of Rome believe to be inferior to Rome itself.
