Roman Empire at its greatest extent c. 117 AD, with Italy in red and Provinces in pink. Capital Rome : both de jure and de facto until Diocletian, from then nearly only de jure, Mediolanum and Ravenna : only de facto (as capitals of the Roman State, as a whole or the Western part)
The Roman expansion in Italy covers a series of conflicts in which Rome grew from being a small Italian city-state to be the ruler of the Italian peninsula.Roman tradition attributes to the Roman kings the first war against the Sabines and the first conquests around the Alban Hills and down to the coast of Latium.

Should this page be moved to "Italia (Roman region)" or "Italia (Roman diocese)"? The title seems a bit of a misnomer, as there was never a single Roman "province" of Italia. --Abou16:32, 8 March 2006 (UTC) My proposal is renaming this "Italia (Roman Empire) - the use of "province" look awkward as it was the heart of the empire and never a province officially --Korovioff 19:28, 1 April 2006 (UTC) 1. And how might this article differ from Roman Italy in scope, I have to wonder? Cynwolfe (talk) 21:17, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your contribution Neby. However there are some errors: the Augustus regiones formalize anything...moreover, these districts had no administrative function, probably in the beginning, regiones were only used to organize censuses.At the beginning, the Lex Julia granted the rights of the cives romani to all socii states that had not participated in the Social War or who were willing to cease hostilities immediately, but after the conclusion of the war, Roman citizenship was extended to all of the Italian Socii states. All italic peopels, not mostly of them...Finally. I think it is wrong to delete the most important characteristic of Italia: Italy's status as a territory distinct from the Roman provinces. It is an universally known fact...I'm surprised you did not know this.--Diegriva (talk) 16:11, 7 October 2013 (UTC) 1. Don't worry, Diegriva, I know very well that Italy wasn't a province. I'm sorry you thought otherwise. What I was at pains to correct was the erroneous s...
I have three questions for User Enok about these recent reverts: 1. why the mention of the "Lex Roscia" and the info about the abolition of province Gallia Cisalpina in 42 BC and its incorporation to the administration of Italy should be "not relevant" to the article; 2. why the sourced description of the successive enlargements of the territory of Roman Italy under Augustus after 42 BC would constitute "Italian Nationalism"; 3. why he has removed references to previously unsourced informations; Of course, other interested users are also welcome here to give their opinion. Alex2006 (talk) 18:51, 14 October 2014 (UTC) 1. 1) That paragraph describes the use of the term "Italy"; all Italian provinces (not just the Cisalpine Gaul) became part of the administration of Italy only during the time of Augustus. 2. 2) The Aosta Valley did not even exist at that time; it's a clear reference to the current Italian borders. Also, it was not part of the Roman Italy (see both the maps inside the a...
About your Third Opinion request: I'm a regular volunteer at 3O. The request made there for a third opinion has been removed because all requests for moderated content dispute resolution at Wikipedia, including 3O, must be thoroughly discussed on the article talk page.

Despite the difficulties in titling this article, it has really good information not easliy found elswhere. I would question whether Constantine didn't found Constantinople as a new capital. Surely that was his intention in some way, even if the city did not for several decades have the full institutional trappings that Old Rome had (probably only to placate the old aristocracy on the Tiber). Certainly Constantine wanted to call the city New Rome, even if the name never became popular. Either way, the sentence on Clarii becoming Clarissimi seems garbled. The article on Constantinople itself seems pretty good on this if one reads the whole thing (the opening paragraph doesn't quite get it right, I think). The administrative division of the Empire following the death of Theodosius I did not create two Empires, and it would be good to find a way to express that succinctly. Further, if one calls the western half "Western Roman Empire", then the eastern half should be called "Eastern Rom...
Propose to merge State of Rome -> Roman Italy; the articles are essentially about the same thing (Roman administrative division of Italia).GreyShark (dibra) 10:20, 8 July 2018 (UTC) 1. I disagree. State or Rome is a useful catch-all term historians use to refer to the Roman state continuity in its totality, or I should say for all of its phases collectively - i.e. Roman Kingdom, Roman Republic, Roman Empire and even Roman imperial remnants (1204-1475 CE) taken together. Essentially you can use the term to refer to the entire state continuity that existed from April 753 BCE to December 1475 CE (i.e. from the founding of the city of Rome to the fall of the Principality of Theodoro), continuity that lasted unbroken for almost 2228 years. A separate article should remain for it, and that article should be expanded. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:11, 27 July 2018 (UTC) Change the name of the article to ITALIA (which refers specifically to the administrative unit) and the problem is solved.

The Kingdom of Italy, also called Imperial Italy, was one of the constituent kingdoms of the Holy Roman Empire, along with the kingdoms of Germany, Bohemia, and Burgundy. It comprised large parts of northern and central Italy. Its original capital was Pavia until the 11th century. In 773, Charlemagne, the King of the Franks, crossed the Alps to invade the Kingdom of the Lombards, which encompassed all of Italy except the Duchy of Rome, the Venetian Republic and the Byzantine possessions in the s
After the Battle of Taginae, in which the Ostrogoth king Totila was killed, the Byzantine general Narses captured Rome and besieged Cumae. Teia, the new Ostrogothic king, gathered the remnants of the Ostrogothic army and marched to relieve the siege, but in October 552 Narses ambushed him at Mons Lactarius in Campania, near Mount Vesuvius and Nuceria Alfaterna. The battle lasted two days and Teia was killed in the fighting. Ostrogothic power in Italy was eliminated, but according to Roman histor
The death of the Emperor Lothair I in 855 led to his realm of Middle Francia being split among his three sons. The eldest, Louis II, inherited the Carolingian lands in Italy, which were now for the first time, ruled as a distinct unit. The kingdom included all of Italy as far south as Rome and Spoleto, but the rest of Italy to the south was under the rule of the Lombard Principality of Benevento or of the Byzantine Empire. Following Louis II's death without heirs, there were several decades of c
In 951 King Otto I of Germany had married Adelaide of Burgundy, the widow of late King Lothair II of Italy. Otto assumed the Iron Crown of Lombardy at Pavia despite his rival Margrave Berengar of Ivrea. When in 960 Berengar attacked the Papal States, King Otto, summoned by Pope John XII, conquered the Italian kingdom and on 2 February 962 had himself crowned Holy Roman Emperor at Rome. From that time on, the Kings of Italy were always also Kings of Germany, and Italy thus became a constituent ki
The history of Italy following the Peace of Cateau-Cambrésis was characterized by foreign domination and economic decline. The North was under indirect rule of the Austrian Habsburgs in their positions as Holy Roman Emperors , and the south was under direct rule of the Spanish branch of the Habsburgs .
