The She-wolf of Rome

The She-wolf of Rome is the official symbol of the Eternal City. In legend, a she-wolf sucked the twins Remus and Romulus, the founder of Rome. Today, it's also the symbol of Rome's soccer team, AS Roma. You'll see many examples of the She-wolf, La Lupa, when you walk through Rome.

An official poster for the 1960 Rome Olympic Games, by Armando Testa. The design for this poster was fiercely contested with 212 artists submitting 249 designs. The winning artist Armando Testa was from Turin who produced a modern interpretation of the Belvedere Capital including the she-wolf suckling Romulus & Remus, whilst the capital itself portrays the crowning of a victorious athlete.

Lupa is the immortal wolf who trains demigods in the ways of Rome. She trains Roman demigods at the Wolf House then sends them to Camp Jupiter where they can join the legion. Remus and Romulus were the twin sons of Mars and Rhea Silvia who were thrown into the River Tiber at the command of their great-uncle Amulius. They were saved by a great she-wolf who nurtured and raised them as her own young.

°°Capitoline Wolf°° Traditional stories handed down by the ancient Romans themselves explain the earliest history of their city in terms of legend and myth. The most familiar of these myths, and perhaps the most famous of all Roman myths, is the story of Romulus and Remus, the twins who were suckled by a she-wolf.
