Description : Cori is a city and comune in the province of Latina, in the Lazio region of central Italy. The city also known as Città di Cori. Cori was well developed in the age of the expansion of Rome (7th-6th century BC). Known as "Cora" in this period, it became a Roman possession after the Social War (90–88 BC), maintaining some administrative and political autonomy. Cori suffered a steep decline in the early centuries of the Middle Ages. It was often allied with its neighbour Velletri. It was a possession of the Annibaldi until 1234, when it went back to the Papal suzerainty, under which (apart from a short period under Ladislaus of Naples in 1400–10) it remained until the unification of Italy. It has been part of the province of Latina since 1934.
