Savoca (Sicilian: Sàvuca) is a comune in the province of Messina in Sicily. The town, together with Forza d’Agrò, was the location for the scenes set in Corleone of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather. Bar Vitelli in Savoca, which is still a functioning establishment, was featured in the movie as the place where Michael Corleone asked Apollonia’s father to meet his daughter.

    The Roman province of Africa (named for a people who lived there - Afri, singular Afer, was a Latin name for the Carthaginians in what is now Tunisia). The province Africa was established after the Romans defeated Carthage in the Third Punic War. It roughly comprised the territory of present-day northern Tunisia, and the small Mediterranean Sea coast of modern-day western Libya along the Syrtis Minor. The Arabs later named roughly the same region as the province Ifriqiya, a rendering of Africa. The African provinces were amongst the wealthiest regions in the Roman Empire (rivaled only by Egypt, Syria and Italy itself). As a consequence people from all over the Empire migrated into the Roman Africa Province, most importantly veterans in early retirement who settled in Africa on farming plots promised for their military service. Historian Theodore Mommsen estimated that under Hadrian nearly 1/3 of the eastern Numidia population (roughly modern Tunisia) was descended from Roman veterans. Even so, the Roman military presence of North Africa was relatively small, consisting of about 28,000 troops and auxiliaries in Numidia and the two Mauretanian provinces. Starting in the 2nd century AD, these garrisons were manned mostly by locals. A sizable Latin-speaking population developed that was multinational in background, sharing the north African region with those speaking Punic and Berber languages. Imperial security forces began to be drawn from the local population, including the Berbers. 

    Abun-Nasr, in his A History of the Maghrib, said that “What made the Berbers accept the Roman way of life all the more readily was that the Romans, though a colonizing people who captured their lands by the might of their arms, did not display any racial exclusiveness and were remarkably tolerant of Berber religious cults, be they indigenous or borrowed from the Carthaginians. However, the Roman territory in Africa was unevenly penetrated by Roman culture. Pockets of non-Romanized Berbers continued to exist throughout the Roman period, even in such areas as eastern Tunisia and Numidia.” By the end of the Western Roman Empire nearly all of the Maghreb was fully romanized and the Roman Africans enjoyed a high level of prosperity.
