That's our lesson for today. Sit up straight.
|The Lazio Symbol|
It's an octagon with 5 squares inside, each representing a Lazio province (an administrative entity): la provincia di Frosinone (down highway 6, to the southeast), di Latina (along the coast), Rieti (to the northeast), Viterbo (northwest), and--in the center of the symbol, and grounding the region, Roma. The 5 provinces are represented by "stemme," which might be translated as "coats of arms" or "heraldic symbols."
