History Classification - Country/period arrangement

Every country has a set of period sub-divisions related to the significant historical chronology of the country. You'll find here only Italy as an example of those sub-divisions. All other countries follow the same pattern of period arrangement. In general the use of those geographical arrangements are limited for all countries to the first level of the "country/period" arrangement.
