The porticos that shelter and shade your way through the streets of the old town centre of Bologna and the infinite, multicoloured sea of umbrellas on the sunny beaches of Romagna. The city, which is modern, dynamic and wealthy but still retains its human face and the seemingly endless coastline crowded with tourists drawn by that irresistible trio of sun, sea, and fun.
L’Emilia - Is this Emilia-Romagna? Yes, it is all this and much more, starting with its outstanding historical, artistic and cultural heritage.One of the richest regions of Italy, Emilia-Romagna is a gigantic treasure trove of architectural gems and artistic masterpieces, famous ancient universities and modern centres of artistic and cultural learning.
In Bologna, seat of the oldest Italian university (eleventh century), there are countless monuments of great artistic value. Some examples include the ancient and spectacular Asinelli and Garisenda Towers, both of which lean noticeably, Piazza Maggiore, with its great medieval buildings, and the Gothic Basilica of Saint Petronius, where Charles V was crowned emperor in 1530.
Outside Bologna, there are a number of places you should not miss. These include the Byzantine masterpieces of Ravenna, the mediaeval baptistery of Benedetto Antelami in Parma, the Malatesta Temple in Rimini, the Romanesque church of San Mercuriale in Forlì, the ancient Palazzo Comunale in Piacenza, the seventeenth-century Sanctuary of Madonna della Ghiara in Reggio Emilia, the splendid Estense Art Gallery in Modena, and the harmonious and perfectly preserved old town centre of Ferrara.
And ’enjoy your meal!’. Why do we say that? Go into any restaurant in Emilia-Romagna and you’ll understand.
