Curiosity

Piacenza was founded by the legionaries of Rome in 218 BC as a military outpost, with the functions of control over the surrounding lands and defence in the context of the Second Punic War. Just in December of that year the Roman army suffered a historic defeat inflicted by the Carthaginians led by Hannibal in the famous Battle of Trebbia. The Roman soldier’s Mediterranean diet included the daily consumption of a litre of wine, which at the time was considered a real food. From the beginning the Romans therefore started the cultivation of wine vines throughout the province and especially on the hills, which have always been more suited to wine production. The ancient Romans loved to drink the best wine at the end of the banquets, after having poured it into glasses.
