Italian term or phrase: municipi romani
La citta` costituiva uno dei municipi romani
Dato che non mi sembra abbia molto senso parlare di county halls ho scelto i termine latino municipia.
Cosa ne pensate?
pietra
towns, cities; towns and cities; municipia
Explanation:
"Municipality" refers to a place as an administrative entity, often with emphasis on where its boundaries are. "Towns" and "cities" sound more natural, but it's difficult to draw the line between them. "Municipia" is fine for an educated audience.
