  • UNESCO established in 181 BC as a colony under Latin law by the triumvirs Romans Lucius Manlius Acidinus, Publius Scipio Nasica and Gaius Flaminiomandati by the Senate to bar the road to the barbarians threatening the eastern borders of Italy, the city initially grew as a basis for military campaigns against the histri, and against various peoples, including the meat and then to the Roman expansion towards the Danube. The first settlers were 3500 infantrymen followed by their respective families. Is divided by the maximum hinge, now via Giulia Augusta, and the decumanus maximus. Romanized region, city, City Hall after 89 BC was enlarged in stages, as evidenced by the different walls. During the winter of 59 and 58 BC, as recorded in the Gallic wars, Julius Caesar circum camps poses Aquileiam, [6] and around Aquileia Aquileia recalled two legions to deal with the Helvetii. Certainly Besides this Caesar there were others, from which the city gained several advantages. Became political and administrative centre (capital of the Augustan Region Venetia et Histria X) and prospero emporio, benefiting from the long port system and the important Sunburst roads that branched off both northward, beyond the Alps and up to the Baltic Sea (" Amber Road "), both from Gaul to the latitudinal East. Since late Republican and during most of the Imperial era Aquileia was one of the great centers of the Roman Empire. Remarkable was the artistic life, supported by the richness of the patrons and the intensity of traffic and contacts. The plague for AquileiaModifica the Empire from 165 to 189 was afflicted by a plague, possibly smallpox epidemic, known as the Antonine Plague or "Galen's plague", which lasted about 15 years and according to some sources [7], when a total of 5 million victims. According to some it was one of those events that changed profoundly Roman history, almost to determine a momentous break with the previous period. The city of Aquileia saw from 168 massing on its territory immense amounts of troops and the fear that this gathering would lugging the dangerous disease soon founded. In the spring of 168 the emperors Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus decide to travel to the Danube area to reach Carnuntum; Aquileia is the first stage, the Imperial General Staff consisted of the praetorian prefect Titus Furius Victorinus, Pomponius Proculus Vitrasio Pollio, original Latin Tang Priscus, Claudio Pediment, Advent Antistius. The two emperors came to Aquileia and worried about the epidemic that had already caused the death of prefect Furius Victorinus sends a letter to Galen from which personal physician for the campaign. Over the summer of the same year Marcus Aurelius retires from military campaign with his troops to winter at Aquileia here is achieved by Galen just with the outbreak of the first cases of plague in the city. The increasing spread of plague cases in Aquileia induces emperors decide to retire with only personal escort in Rome; Lucius Verus, which had stressed this departure because of his ongoing illness will die to Altino, stricken by apoplexy.
