Bergamo : Lombardia (Italy)

Bergamo (Bèrghem in Lombard) occupies the site of the ancient town of Bergomum, founded as a settlement of the Celtic tribe of Cenomani in Cisalpine Gaul over an Etruscan settlement named Barra. In 49 BC it became a Roman municipality and was an important hub on the military road between Friuli and Raetia. From the 6th century Bergamo was the seat of one of the most important Lombard duchies of Northern Italy.

I've chosen to let people comment freely on my posts. Nevertheless, you'll lose your time taunting me and calling me a fascist (which I'm really not) : I pray you to read my introduction which will reassure that my intentions genuinely aim at achieving amateurish knowledge. I understand that you may not share my passion for the history of the peopling of the World, just don't let me know as clear conscience gained by bashing a humble documentary work is useless.
