Portuguese to English: História da Itália

História da Itália

O nome Itália vem da Roma Antiga. Os romanos chamavam o sul da península italiana de Italia, que significa "terra de bois" ou "terra de pastos".

Esta região influenciou bastante o desenvolvimento cultural e social de toda a Europa mediterrânea, bem como teve muita influência sobre a cultura europeia. Importantes culturas e civilizações existiram na região desde tempos pré-históricos. Importantes civilizações incluem a Magna Grécia e a civilização etrusca, que dominaram esta parte do mundo durante séculos, e especialmente o Império Romano, que estendeu seus limites sobre a maior parte do continente europeu, o norte da África e o Oriente Médio.

Após a queda do Império Romano do Ocidente em 476, a província italiana foi governada por uma série de reis bárbaros, até ao século VI, quando os Estados Papais foram criados, com a capital em Roma, sob o comando da Igreja Católica. Em 776, a Lombardia foi conquistada por Carlos Magno, que foi coroado imperador da Lombardia e do Sacro Império Romano-Germânico em 800, pelo Papa Leão III.

History of Italy

The name "Italy" comes from Ancient Rome. The Romans called the southern Italian peninsula Italy, which means “land of oxen" or "land of pastures."

This region greatly influenced the cultural and social development of all Mediterranean Europe and had a major influence on European culture. Important cultures and civilizations existed in that region from prehistoric times. Important civilizations include Greater Greece and the Etruscan civilization, which dominated this part of the world for many centuries and, especially, the Roman Empire, which extended its borders over most of the European Continent, North Africa, and the Middle East.

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476, the Italian province was ruled by a series of barbarian kings, until the 6th century, when the Pontifical States were created with its capital in Rome, under the rule of the Catholic Church.

In 776, Lombardy was conquered by Charlemagne, who was crowned Emperor of Lombardy and the Holy Roman-Germanic Empire in 800 by Pope Leo III.

Após iniciar o pregão desta terça-feira no positivo, o Ibovespa perdeu força nesta tarde e fechou em queda de 0,40%, a 51.625 pontos, com volume financeiro de R$ 7,3 bilhões. O sentimento negativo frente às preocupações com uma eventual incursão militar à Síria, limitou o apetite dos investidores por risco, ajudando a ofuscar indicadores melhores do que o esperado nos Estados Unidos. O movimento do mercado brasileiro, no entanto, foi na contramão das principais bolsas norte-americanas, que encerraram no positivo embora tenham perdido força ao longo da sessão. O Dow Jones subiu 0,16% e o S&P 500 fechou em alta de 0,43%. A proximidade com a importante resistência em 52.500 pontos, também contribuiu para uma realização de lucros, a 1ª queda do últimos 5 pregões, afugentando um pouco compras novas nesse patamar de preços.

After starting off this Tuesday’s trading session in positive territory, the Ibovespa lost strength in the afternoon and closed with a loss of 0.40%, at 51,625 points, on a financial volume of R$ 7.3 billion. The negative sentiment surfacing in the face of concerns over a possible military incursion into Syria limited investors’ appetite for risk, helping to overshadow the better than expected indicators in the United States. The Brazilian market, however, moved in the opposite direction of major North American exchanges, which closed in positive territory despite losing strength throughout the session. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 0.16% and the S&P 500 closed up by 0.43%. Significant resistance developing close to 52,500 points also contributed to profit-taking, the first drop in the last 5 trading sessions, driving away a small number of new purchases at this price level.
