Rome birthday. On April 21, 753 BC Romulus is said to have founded the city. With this date the chronology of the city begins and thus in the year 2021 (in Roman numerals MMXXI) we have the year 2774 (MMDCCLXXIV) since the foundation of Rome.
The date was calculated by the astrologer Tarunzio, a friend of Cicero, shortly before the turn of the Christian era.
Events for Rome’s birthday
The Gruppo Storico Romano organizes exhibitions, events and a parade every year at the Circus Maximus on the founding day of Rome.
