The Beretta factory grew from an area that has seen weapons designs since the Roman era. Julius Caesar controlled the area before crossing the Rubicon. The area has witnessed Hannibal’s elephants, the Huns, untold barbarians, and over time standing armies from Napoleon to even the United States Army.
