"Monza" is a city and "comune" on the river Lambro, a tributary of the Po, in the Lombardy region of aly some 15 km north-northeast of Milan. is best known for its Grand Prix motor racing circuit, the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

Since June 11, 2004 Monza has officially been designated the capital of the new province of Monza and Brianza. This new administrative arrangement will come fully into effect in 2009, and until then it will continue to be treated for many purposes as a "comune" within the province of Milan.

Monza is the third-largest city of Lombardy and the most important economic, industrial and administrative centre of the Brianza area, supporting a textile industry and a publishing trade.

Monza also hosts a Department of the University of Milan Bicocca, a Court of Justice and several offices of regional administration. Monza Park is one of the largest urban parks in Europe.

Monza has the typical submediterranean climate of the Po valley, with cool, short winters and warm summers; temperatures are very similar to Milan and vary from about 2°C in January, the coldest month, to about 23°C in July, the warmest.

Precipitation is abundant, with a slight maximum in fall and a slight minimum in winter and summer; despite this, normally, the area of the city doesn"t suffer drought in any season.

Origins in the Bronze Age
Late nineteenth-century finds of funerary urns show that the human presence in the area dates back at least to the Bronze Age, when people would have lived in settlements of pile dwellings raised above the rivers and marshes.

The Roman period
During the third century BCE the Romans subdued the Insubres, Gauls who had crossed the Alps and settled around Mediolanum (now Milan). A gallo-celtic tribe, who also seem to have been Insubres, then founded a village on the Lambro, of which the ruins of a bridge remain. Standing in a place where young people practised sports, the bridge was named ‘Arena’ and its remains can be seen near today’s "Ponte dei Leoni" (Lions Bridge).

During the Roman Empire the town was known as Modicia.

The Lombards
The Lombard invasion of aly was an important event in Monza"s history and the Lombard king Autari married Theodelinda, daughter of the Bavarian ruler Garibald I.

The new queen ordered the construction near the River Lambro of an "oraculum", a sort of little church, that today is part of the basilica of Saint John. Paul the Deacon, an 8th century historian of the Lombards, tells us about this, writing:
" Theudelinda regina basilicam costruxerat, qui locus supra Mediolanum duodecim milibus abest, " ("Theodelinda built a queen basilica, whose position is twelve miles from Milan"). There is also an important legend that Theodelinda, asleep while her husband was hunting, saw in a dream a dove who told her : "Modo", Latin for "here", in order to say that she should build the oraculum in that place, and the queen answered "etiam", meaning "yes". So from the two words "modo" and "etiam", following the legend, would have derived "Modoetia", the medieval name of Monza.

Subsequent events
In the Middle Ages, the commune of Monza was sometimes independent, sometimes subject to Milan and the Visconti.

The first rail road built in North aly was the Milan and Monza Rail Road opened for service on August 17, 1840.

On the evening of 29 July 1900 King Umberto I of aly was assassinated in Monza by the anarchist Gaetano Bresci.

Main sights
In the course of its history Monza withstood thirty-two sieges, but the Porta d"Agrate is all that remains of its original walls and fortifications. Nearby is the nunnery in which the nun of Monza was enclosed in Manzoni"s "I Promessi Sposi".

Monza is famous for its Romanesque-Gothic Duomo of Saint John. There Theodelinda"s centrally-planned Greek-cross "oraculum" ("chapel of prayer") of "ca" 595 (its foundations remaining under the crossing of nave and transept) was enlarged at the close of the 13th century by enclosing the former atrium within the building. The fine black and-white marble arcaded facade was erected in the mid-14th century by Matteo da Campione. The campanile was erected in 1606 to designs by Pellegrino Tibaldi. In the frescoed Chapel of Theodelinda is the Iron Crown of Lombardy, supposed to contain one of the nails used at the Crucifixion. The treasury also contains the crown, fan and gold comb of Theodelinda, and, as well as Gothic crosses and reliquaries, a golden hen and seven chickens, representing Lombardy and her seven provinces. Though the interior has suffered changes, there is a fine relief by Matteo da Campione representing a royal Lombard coronation, and some 15th-century frescoes with scenes from the life of Theodelinda.

The historical centre also include:
*the church of Santa Maria in Strada, with a rich terra-cotta facade of 1393
*the "Broletto" or "Arengario", the 14th-century palace of the civic commune, raised on an arcade of pointed arches, with a tall square machiolated tower terminating in a sharp central cone.
*the church of San Pietro Martire
*the memorial "Cappella Espiatoria", built in 1900 in memory of the assassinated King Umberto I of aly
*Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (15ht century)
*Oratory of St. Gregory (17th century)
*church of Santa Maria al Carrobiolo (16th century)

Nearby, the royal villa ("Villa Reale") originally built by Giuseppe Piermarini in 1777 for the archduke Ferdinand of Austria, lies on the banks of the Lambro, surrounded by Monza Park, one of the largest enclosed parks in Europe.

Other villas includes the Mirabello, Mirabellino, Durini, Crivelli Mesmer, Prata, Archinto Pennati, Calloni and Villa Carminati-Ferrario.
