BeschreibungExcerpt from A Classical Tour Through Italy, Vol. 3
Many, we well know, are the blessings which accompany independence; but independence, by which I mean exemption from foreign influence, is only a partial advantage if it be not perfected by liberty. This observation is, I think, in a peculiar manner elucidated by the history of Milan, which, from its situation, the fertility of the surrounding country, and the mildness of the climate, soon attained, and with a few intervals of visitation and disaster generally preserved, but never exceeded, a certain mediocrity of fame and magnificence.
This city, like most of those situated between the Alps and Apennines, is of Gallic origin. The Insubrians were its founders, and at an early period of Roman history, built it, or rather erected a few hovels, which gradually rose from a village to a town, and at length became a city; or so at least it was called during the reign of Tarquinius Priscus, or his successor Ancus Martius.
