It's an age old city, having been founded during AD 79 when a Roman fort was constructed here to protect the area against the threat of invasions by their not so friendly neighbors. It remained a relatively small town for many centuries. During the explosive growth experienced by the textile industry throughout the 19th century the city started growing rapidly and today it has about half a million inhabitants.
