The Birth of Rome

Rome was founded on April 21st, 753 BC. That makes today Rome’s 2,775th birthday!

We made this video years ago. It’s silly, we are all a little bit older now, technology has improved, and I play both a pregnant lady and a she-wolf. But we like it just the way it is.

It’s filmed on April 21st in Circus Maximus between Aventine Hill and Palatine Hill, so pretty much exactly where these events took place.
