The origins of Monza
The town of Monza rose in its primitive built-up installations long the coasts of Lambro, lived from celthic descents, then roman about 50 B.C. during the campaign of Caesar. The name, also in the contrast of different theories, should be the resultant of the ancient Modicia (Modoicum, Moedicia, Modoetia, Monscia) or Maguntia, from that soon Munscia and Monza. Before castrum and then roman vicus, with inhabitants devoted at the sheep-rearing and at the agriculture, Monza provides archeological reports that can affirm a sure roman civilization: bridges, aqueducts, roads and their ancient denominations testify it (is sufficient think at the ancient Bridge of Arena in brickwork and serizzo, long 70 metres and wide 4, now replaced from Bridge of Lions). The accession of the barbaric hordes sees soon the town becoming summer seat of emperorsm the ostrogoth Teodorico between the first, that did it Palatium Magnum.
