Since classical times, ancient Carthaginians, Phoenicians, and Greeks established settlements in the south of Italy, with Etruscans and Celts inhabiting the centre and north of Italy respectively and various different ancient Italian tribes and Italic peoples dispersed throughout the Italian Peninsula and insular Italy.
The Italic tribe known as the Latins formed the Roman Kingdom, which eventually became a republic that conquered and assimilated other nearby civilisations.
I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.
The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.
During the Middle Ages, Italy suffered sociopolitical collapse amid calamitous barbarian invasions, but by the 11th century, numerous rival city-states and maritime republics rose to great prosperity through shipping, commerce, and banking, laying down the groundwork for modern capitalism.
These independent statelets, acting as Europe's main trading hubs with Asia and the Near East, often enjoyed a greater degree of democracy and wealth in comparison to the larger feudal monarchies that were consolidating throughout Europe at the time, though much of central Italy remained under the control of the theocratic Papal States, while Southern Italy remained largely feudal until the 19th century, partially as a result of a succession of Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Spanish, and Bourbon conquests of the region.
Nevertheless, Italy's commercial and political power significantly waned with the opening of the Atlantic trade route and the route to the Indian Ocean via the Cape of Good Hope, that bypassed the Mediterranean.
Everything is homemade and fresh, with an emphasis on sustainable sources.
Whether it's a casual encounter with our famous Rockstar Roast Beef Sub, or getting serious with perfect steaks and seafood, the Rock House is solid.
This page is an attempt by me to organize the vast majority of online dating related statistics and facts available on the Internet.
Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.
The second are will be for actual dating services and be divided accordingly.
