Rome was the capital of Italy. During the 2012 apocalypse, a massive earthquake strikes the city and Italy, in a magnitude of 9.0, which caused the St. Peter's Basilica to collapse. The population in Italy and Rome were killed instantly, including the Italian Prime Minister and his family. Rome was later swept by a megatsunami in the Worldwide Flooding.
After the apocalypse ended, Rome was left in extreme damage from the apocalyptic disasters and is rendered uninhabitable.
