Latina

Latina (Italian pronunciation: [laˈtiːna] ( listen)) is the capital of the province of Latina in the Lazio region, in central Italy. As of 2011[update], the city has 115,895 inhabitants and is thus the second-largest city of the region, after the national capital Rome. It was founded in 1932 under the fascist administration, as Littoria, when the area surrounding it, which had been a swamp since antiquity, was drained.
