  • I have seen the ages, the years.
    I have witstood empires, nations, cities.
    I was born to a religion, and became a religion myself.
    I am the city of Rome
    and you shall not find a finest, shameless city.

    They say I am eternal. They are, indeed, wrong.
    Eternal is the idea of me.
    I am rotten and empty, full only of my citizens' hopes, pride and hearth.
    We will meet soon. You will be welcome.
