The Romans have always revered wolves as symbols of power and strength. For centuries, these wild animals roamed the hills and villages of Tuscany. Today, although rare, wolves can still be seen in the countryside and continue to be an important part of Italian folklore.
In Roman mythology, Romulus and his twin brother Remus were the children of Rhea Silva and Mars (or in some variations, Hercules). After being sent down the river Tiber in a basket as babies, the twins were discovered by a she-wolf, a lupa, who cared for them and by doing so, saved their lives.
The lupa suckling Romulus and Remus has always been the symbol of Rome's foundation and its depiction can be seen throughout Italy in many art forms.
