Inhabited since Ancient Roman times and famous for its important monuments, such as the location of an amphitheater (the Circus Flaminius) and several theaters (the Theater of Marcello and the Theater of Balbo).
Rome became the capital of a Catholic religious state while pagan cults had been outlawed in A.D.390, well before the fall of the Roman Empire, the Jewish religion had never been a target of political action and Rome counted a largish Jewish population among its citizens.
