The statuta Urbis are the oldest municipal statutes of Rome that have reached us. they were issued in 1360-63 by the will of the "popular government", governing the city with its own laws during the Avignon Papacy. the "popular" statuta ruled the legal and institutional life of the city until the return of the popes in Rome. in the 18th century, the ancient manuscripts of the statutes emerged from Vatican archives. as soon as Rome became capital of Italy, in 1871, legal and historical studies on the text, promoted by roman cultural institutions, flourished.
