"Great little city!" Forlì by Mundus

I'm temporarily living here, before moving to Bologna.
The Roman toponym "Forum Livii" should not trick you about its date and history: the foundation date of the town is uncertain, some scholars would be inclined to suggest the 2nd century BC, others a more recent date.
This area was probably inhabited by the Celts and Gauls who integrated with the aboriginal population. Set at a strategic point along the Via Emilia, for a long time Forlì was an important agricultural centre, harvesting and selling a number of different products. It became a Ghibelline Republic in the 10th century and, in 1241, obtained the right to add the emblem of the Suevian eagle to its shield for the support it gave Federico II. Following this, it was passed on to the Montefeltro, then the Ordelaffi families and was incorporated into the Papal State during the first few years of 1500. It then had to wait for the arrival of the Napoleonic troupes before a long period of inactivity was finally interrupted. A large number of people joined the patriotic rebellions in 1831, among which the figure of Aurelio Saffi, who used all his strength to fight for the unity of Italy, stands out.
