Did you know that Virgil in his famous work Aeneid defines Cortona as “the mother of Troy and grandmother of Rome”? This ancient Cortonese saying finds its historical roots in the fact that Dardanus (Greek mythological figure), son of Zeus ,after leaving his native Cortona would have founded the famous city of Troy and Aeneas, one of his descendants ,would have had then among his descendants Romulus, founder of Rome. What does this mean? That the roots of this wonderful Tuscan town, the last bastion of the Val di Chiana before entering the territory of Umbria and then Lazio, really go back to thousands of years ago.
