Monumento Lupa Piacenza: città primogenita

PCIX logo: the She-Wolf of Piacenza


The Capitoline Wolf is depicted in PCIX's logo. Why. Piacenza, strategically located, was founded in 218 B.C. by the Romans; hence it was named 'the Firstborn'.

The She-wolf monument, inaugurated on June 12, 1938, is located on an axis with Via Roma, given to the city of Piacenza by the government in memory of its Roman origin.
