Italian proverb #1: Tutte le strade portano a Roma

”Tutte le strade portano a Roma” is an Italian proverb that refers to the fact that in the Ancient Rome there were many different roads connecting the city with the rest of the Empire and that if taken on the way back, they would have led the travelers to Rome from the many different settlements of the Empire.


Nowadays, as a proverb, it means that there are different ways to get to the same goal. Do you agree? The proverb exists in English as well and can be translated as ”All Roads Lead to Rome”. What about in your language?

  1. Nice though 🙂 Yes, interesting but it really seems that nothing is changing for centuries. In Germany it is exactly as on picture, stronger traffic direction goes from North to South. We say “Alle Wege führen nach Rom”.
