Nice! Can you allow 'Innocenzo' for Innocent? Also, I tried thinking of an X answer but couldn't come up with one that convinced me. X does mean a draw in football betting (whereas 1 means home win, 2 means away win - see https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totocalcio) and perhaps X can be the start of a year in Roman numerals - for example in 1937 lira coins you can read 'XV' (see http://numismatica-italiana.lamoneta.it/moneta/W-VE3/22). But I'm not sure these ideas are any good.

As the X is seemingly non-existent in the Italian alphabet, maybe "Roman ten" is actually a funny trick, as the answer would be X for X. :)

Hercules Roman, Heracles Greek. It's really not that hard to look up.

The cult of Hercules was a huge part of Roman religion. It was ripped off wholesale from the Greeks (or more likely was part of a wider Mediterranean religion which was carried around by the various peoples migrating around the area), but Hercules was definitely a Roman thing.

Heracles/Hercules was originally a Greek myth, though it did indeed spread throughout the Mediterranean, largely thanks to the Greeks colonising large parts of it, and also Alexander's conquest of Persia helped to spread Heracles' cult out into the east and Egypt

Gosh, Hercules is merely a transliteration of the Greek version. The myth (not "the legend") was Greek, not Roman. And Pantheon wasn't built in 126 A.D. Definitely guys, let Italians make quiz about Italy

"Duomo" doesn't mean cathedral. It is the main church of the city or town, so it is often a cathedral too.
