He was born, in Rome, on November 10, 1958 and later died, in London, on March 10, 2001. In Italy and Spain, public or ''Roman Penance'' was dominant. Those upon whom penance was imposed and those who accepted the life voluntarily were forbidden to associate with the ''militia saecularis'' or secular militia. This included holding civil offices or being a merchant (militia saecularis togata) and from bearing arms (militia saecularis paludata). Fasting, which had always been part of the penitential discipline, became more regularized, and three major times of fasting were observed, Advent, Lent (prior to Easter), and a period after Pentecost. There were also two minor Lents. Other periods of fasting and abstinence could be imposed. '''San Benedetto in Perillis''' is a town and ''comune'' in the province of L'Aquila, Abruzzo, central Italy. The town is situated 43 kilometers away from the regional capital, L'Aquila. The Italians arrived in Debre Marqos 20 May 1936. Through an interpreter, Achille Starace, who had arrived by plane, told the surprised local inhabitants that he had come free them from their oppressors. Debre Marqos was later isolated, and practically besieged by a revolt in 1938. General Ugo Cavallero, with sixty thousand men and supported by airplanes and tanks, had crushed the revolt by the end of May. A major Italian (Italy) fortification was located in the city during the existence of Italian East Africa, and captured by the British Gideon Force and Ethiopian Arbegnoch (or Resistance Fighters) 3 April 1941 during the East African Campaign (East African Campaign (World War II)). Emiliano Mutti was born in 1933 near the small lake Orta in northern Italy. During World War II his father Ido moved the family to the small mountain village of Nociveglia in the Northern Apennines. Surrounded by rocks and forests, Emiliano developed a love for the mountains that he has never lost. Later, when he realized that the rocks in this valley were turbidites, he returned to study them and produce classic papers on deep-water depositional systems. History In 1889, when it was a fief of Queen Taytu (Taytu Betul), Italian (Italy) ambassador Count Pietro Antonelli met with Emperor Menelik II at Wuchale shortly after the death in battle of Emperor Yohannes IV. The two countries came to an agreement known as the Treaty of Wuchale, which was signed on 2 May. Chris Prouty, ''Empress Taytu and Menilek II'' (Trenton: The Red Sea Press, 1986), pp. 61f.

Italy He had a ten-year stint in Italy's professional leagues (Lega Nazionale Professionisti) after beginning his career in the NSL (National Soccer League). He has been a regular for Australia since 2003, playing in his customary defensive midfield (Midfielder#Defensive_midfielder) position, and was involved in both the 2006 World Cup (2006 FIFA World Cup) and the 2007 Asian Cup (2007 AFC Asian Cup). Grella's friendship with Australian teammate Mark Bresciano is well known. Grella has described Bresciano as "even more than a brother"; they played together at the AIS, Carlton and Empoli, and were reunited in 2004 when Grella joined Parma, before Bresciano moved on to Palermo (U.S. Città di Palermo) in 2006. The Brotherhood , ''The Age'', November 18, 2005 Aged 19, Grella made his debut in Serie A with Empoli, in a match against Juventus (Juventus F.C.) at the Stadio delle Alpi, where his first job was to mark Zinedine Zidane.

World Football Golden Soft Sombrero Moment with Vince Grella, ''The Four Diegos'', accessed 29 October 2008 Grella built up his reputation in Italy during his time with Empoli, to overcome initial doubts about his suitability to Serie A and earn the respect of the Italian media, coaches and fellow players. Grella was widely linked with a move to AC Milan in 2003, although the proposed transfer never eventuated, and he moved to Parma a year later. While at Parma, both Grella and Bresciano were excused from the 2005 Confederations Cup by the then-Australian manager Frank Farina to allow the pair to take part in a relegation playoff between Parma and Bologna (Bologna F.C. 1909)–which Parma won, to avoid relegation. '''''Bartolomeo Colleoni''''' was an Italian (Italy) ''Condottieri'' class (Condottieri class cruiser) light cruiser, that served in the Regia Marina during World War II. It was named after Bartolomeo Colleoni, an Italian military leader of the 15th century. Between the years of 1974 to 1978, ''Chase'' continued to patrol the waters of the Atlantic. ''Chase'' visited Italy, Spain, Ireland, and France. In 1980, ''Chase'' was back in the U.S., on scene at the America’s Cup in Newport, Rhode Island. In 1982, ''Chase'' participated in "Safe Pass 1982," a member of the Fleet Composite Operational Readiness Group History The club was formerly known as Marconi Fairfield; the name comes from Guglielmo Marconi, the Italian (Italy) inventor of the radio, and Fairfield (New South Wales) (Fairfield, New South Wales), the city in which the club plays. The club was founded in 1958 by an Italian social club called Club Marconi, and was primarily backed and supported by Italians and Italian-Australians living in Sydney. However, the club and team have since established themselves as one of the top sports and social clubs in the Western Sydney Fairfield area (which is known as the premier region for football (soccer) in Sydney and Australia). This has seen the team gain recognition as one of Australia's top football (soccer) entities, with one of the highest rated youth academies in Australian football, and a support that has grown well beyond the Italian community in Sydney. The overseas-born population in West Hoxton includes those from Europe, as well as from more recent arrivals from Asia and the Pacific. A West Hoxton has a higher share of the population born in the Philippines, Fiji and Italy compared to the rest of the City of Liverpool (City of Liverpool, New South Wales). Sartain had charge of the art department of the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, in 1876. In recognition of his services there, the king of Italy conferred on him the title of cavaliere of the Royal Equestrian Order of the Crown of Italy. His architectural knowledge was frequently requisitioned: he took a prominent part in the work of the committee on the Washington Memorial (Washington Monument (Philadelphia)) by Rudolf Siemering in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, and he designed medallions for the monument to George Washington and Lafayette (Gilbert du Motier, marquis de Lafayette) erected in 1869 in Monument Cemetery, Philadelphia.

Roman art was influenced by Greece and can in part be taken as a descendant of ancient Greek painting. However, Roman painting does have important unique characteristics. The only surviving Roman paintings are wall paintings, many from villas in Campania, in Southern Italy. Such painting can be grouped into 4 main "styles" or periods

, Wickenheiser played 23 games, scoring 2 goals and adding 10 assists. Wickenheiser joined a European league to play professional hockey, as the game is more open and less physical than North American leagues. This attempt to play professional hockey was not an entirely smooth process, as Wickenheiser was initially slated to play in Italy, until the Italian Winter Sports Federation ruled that women were ineligible to play in a men's league. She also turned down an offer from Phil Esposito to play for the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. Finland's Hockey Federation unanimously supported letting women play in a men's league, allowing her to debut with HC Salamat in the Suomi-sarja, the third highest hockey league in Finland, on January 10, 2003.

Since ancient times (classical antiquity), Etruscan (Etruscan civilization), Magna Graecia and other cultures (Prehistoric Italy) have flourished in the territory of present-day Italy, being eventually absorbed by Rome (Ancient Rome), that has for centuries remained the leading political and religious centre of Western civilisation (Western world), capital of the Roman Empire and Christianity. During the Dark Ages (Dark Ages (historiography)), the Italian Peninsula faced calamitous invasions by barbarian tribes (Migration Period), but beginning around the 11th century, numerous Italian city-states rose to great prosperity through shipping, commerce and banking (indeed, modern capitalism has its roots in Medieval Italy). Especially during The Renaissance, Italian culture thrived, producing scholars, artists, and polymaths such as Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Michelangelo and Machiavelli. Italian explorers such as Polo (Marco Polo), Columbus (Christopher Columbus), Vespucci (Amerigo Vespucci), and Verrazzano (Giovanni da Verrazzano) discovered new routes to the Far East and the New World, helping to usher in the European Age of Discovery. Nevertheless, Italy would remain fragmented into many warring states for the rest of the Middle Ages, subsequently falling prey to larger European powers (Power (international relations)#Modern Age European powers) such as France (French First Empire), Spain (Spanish Empire), and later Austria (Austrian Empire). Italy would thus enter a long period of decline that lasted until the mid 19th century.

After various unsuccessful attempts, the second (Second War of Italian Independence) and the third (Third War of Italian Independence) wars of Italian Independence resulted in the unification (Italian unification) of most of present-day Italy between 1859-66.

Italy plays a prominent role in global military, cultural and diplomatic affairs "Italy plays a prominent role in European and global military, cultural and diplomatic affairs. The country's European political, social and economic influence make it a major regional power." See ''Italy: Justice System and National Police Handbook'', Vol. 1 (Washington, D.C.: International Business Publications, 2009), p. 9. and thus is considered a major regional power. "Operation Alba may be considered one of the most important instances in which Italy has acted as a regional power, taking the lead in executing a technically and politically coherent and determined strategy." See Federiga Bindi, ''Italy and the European Union'' (Washington, D.C.: Brookings Institution Press, 2011), p. 171. Italy is a founding and leading member of the European Union. Italy is a member of numerous international institutions, including the UN, NATO, the OECD, the OSCE, the DAC (Development Assistance Committee), the WTO, the G4 (G4 (EU)), G6 (G6 (EU)), G7, G8, G10 (Group of Ten (economic)), G20, the Union for the Mediterranean, the Latin Union, the Council of Europe, the Central European Initiative, the ASEM and the Uniting for Consensus.
