The Citta Alta, Bergamo, Italy
That the city of Bergamo is composed of two parts the Città Alta Upper Town, and the Città Bassa Lower Town, which is a lively financial, industrial and administrative centre. The two parts are separated, both physically and symbolically, by the powerful Venetian Walls, which were built in the 16th century and was probably founded by Celtic populations, which settled on the hills in year 223 b.C., when it is certain that Roman military forces were present in this area in 49 BC.
