Rome's history as a city spans over two and a half thousand years.  Founded in the 8th century BC as as a farming community it became the center of the Roman Empire, which dominated Europe, North Africa and the Middle East for over four hundred years from the 1st century BC until the 4th century AD.  Rome has a significant place in Christianity and is the present day home of the Roman Catholic Church and the site of the Vatican City.  During the Middle-Ages, the city became a center of the arts and one of the major centers of the Italian Renaissance.  The current-day version of St Peter's Basilica was built and the Sistine Chapel's ceiling was painted by artist Michelangelo. Famous artists and architects, such as Bramante, Leonardo da Vinci, Bernini and Raphael resided for some time in Rome, contributing to its impressive Renaissance and Baroque architecture.  As a modern city, it has been capital of the unified Italy since 1870.  As it is one of the few major European cities that escaped the war relatively unscathed, central Rome remains essentially Renaissance and Baroque in character.
