Meanings and history of the name Magenta: | Edit

Magenta is a town in Lombardia (Lombardy) region, northern Italy, just west of Milan. Its name is derived from that of Marcus Maxentius, a Roman general and emperor (AD 306-312) who had his headquarters there at Castra Maxentia. The town was the site of the Battle of Magenta (June 4, 1859), fought during the Franco-Piedmontese war against the Austrians (second War of Italian Independence, 1859-61). The brilliant crimson aniline dye was discovered shortly after the battle.
