From antiquity until at least to all the sixteenth century, the Italian peninsula was the central place of Western culture, fulcrum or origin of universal phenomena as the Roman Empire, Roman Catholic Church, Humanism and Renaissance. During these times, Italy produced some of the greatest painters, sculptors, poets, musicians, mathematical and architects in history. Both the internal and external facets of Western Civilization were born on the Italian peninsula, whether one looks at the history of the Christian faith, civil institutions (like the Senate), modern astrology, philosophy, law, art, science, nuclear energy or social customs and culture.
