The Gauls are represented by Virgil as the ancestral enemies of Rome from the sack of the town in 390 varr. until to the conquest of the Po valley in 222 B.C. : thus Virgil is the speaker of the Italian (and Etruscan) public opinion, which does not agree with the politics of Gaulish integration fostered by Caesar ; Augustus had to keep in mind, at least partially, these requirements in constructing his Roman Italy.
