There is a saying in English which is very similar to our “Wherever you go, see what you see”. It’s all about “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”. That is, when you are in Rome, do as the Romans do. However, the saying refers to imperial Rome, or in any case to Italian, not to the cities named in the United States in honor of the Eternal City. which are not less. Up to 13 towns (villages, really, and even vacant lots in many cases) are called Rome in the American country, And it’s not the only city that doubles down: 23 are up to Paris and 9 to Madrid. Many are simply deserted places.
Specifically, various US romaines are distributed in the states of Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. It seems that there is not much to do anywhere except to watch the scenery and enjoy the rural customs. This is not the only case, there are 23 cities named Paris in the United States. one of them unforgettable Thanks to the film by Wim Wenders (“Paris, Texas”), which is present in Texas. But there are also less glamorous Paris in Illinois and Missouri. And three are up to New Paris. One project even tried to determine the route to go through all of them and get the Eiffel Tower pin.
there is till 9 places called Madrid (located in Virginia, New York, New Mexico, Nebraska, Maine, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, and Alabama) and up 11 Places Called Toledo, Unlike the rest of the case, Toledo in Ohio is a large city with approximately 300,000 residents and regional significance. there also Six Valencias, Five Sevilles, Three Barcelonas and a place called Andalusia,
It is not surprising that Americans always specify their city of origin next to the state name, since many place names are borrowed from Europe or the rest of the world. In other cases, they are simple constructs similar to Springfield (“spring fields”), which exist in 34 states. And that’s why it was taken as the home town of “The Simpsons” as a synthesis of the American country, the series that best portrays American society. However, it is not the most frequent place-name: 46 of the 50 states (except Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana, and Oklahoma) have at least one rivulet (“vereda del río”).
