The Emilia Romagna region
Emilia-Romagna is one of the richest, most developed regions in Europe, and it has the third highest GDP per capita in Italy. Bologna, its capital, has one of Italy's highest quality of life indices and advanced social services. Emilia-Romagna is also a cultural and tourist centre, being the home of the University of Bologna, one of the first universities in the world, containing Romanesque and Renaissance cities (such as Modena, Parma and Ferrara), being a centre for food and automobile production (home of automotive companies such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, De Tomaso and Ducati) and having lively coastal resorts such as Rimini and Riccione.
Emilia Romagna lies between the River Po to its north and the Apennine Mountains (to its south). It is one of the most fertile and productive regions of Italy, thanks to the mitigating effect that the Adriatic Sea has on the coastal climate.
The diversity between the mountains and sea offers visitors to Emilia Romagna breathtaking views, in addition to beauty for both the eyes and spirit, with a mixture of the earthy colors, the aromas and the fresh sea air. Not to mention that Emilia Romagna is a hotbed for music, cinema and art appreciated nationally and internationally.
If you come to Bologna for one reason, let it be the food. It is informally the culinary capital of Italy and it isn't nicknamed -Bologna la grassa- which means "Bologna the fat" for nothing. The market in the city center is one of the largest in Europe and has a huge array of fresh cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables, dairy and baked goods. The best deals are the balsamic vinegar from nearby Modena and prosciutto from Parma.
Bologna is an old university city with lavish porticoed walkways and squares, fine historic buildings, and an interesting medieval center.
City of art, culture and commerce, with a streamlined trade-fair organization and a well-known manufacturing and motor tradition, Bologna is famous for its almost 40 km of arcades, the longest in the world.
Home of many famous artists such as Giorgio Morandi, Guido Reni, the Carraccis, Guercino, Aspertini, its charm has also charmed notable people like Mozart, Carducci, Dante, Rossini and Guglielmo Marconi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics.
Rich in art and history, Bologna will amaze the visitor in all seasons, with its enjoyable and lively summer atmosphere or with the magic of Christmas illuminations.
Monteveglio is a comune in the Province of Bologna in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 20 km west of Bologna.
The Parco dell'Abbazia covers about 1100 hectares and the landscape is particularly beautiful: a mosaic of wooded mountains, small valleys and grey calanques alternates with agricultural areas with the traditional hill-type configuration. Fields, crops and cherry orchards stretch over these areas. The landscape changes from the barren and sunny calanque area with ancient rocks (animals take refuge in these calanque areas as well as in the secluded small Ramato River valley) to the lush vegetation of deep and damp small valleys like the Ramato River valley (where beautiful orchids and snowdrops grow), to arid and sunny woods, to cultivated areas with traces of traditional cultivation methods no longer used in the plain, and often also forgotten in the hills, now replaced by mechanised agriculture which is not so in harmony with the environment.
Alongside the harsh natural environment the territory offers extraordinary historical sites such as the remains of the castle of the Matilde di Canossa's period, stage of famous tormented medieval events, the abbey of Santa Maria covering the upper part of the medieval village, the millenary parish church, beautiful noble residences, oratories and ancient rural settlements surrounded by fields and vineyards. The fourteenth-century castle tower now houses a visitor centre dedicated to the tormented historical events of Monteveglio which in medieval times enjoyed moments of great importance. The castle is famous for having resisted the siege of Emperor Henry IV.
The site, of great natural and historical-monumental interest, attracts a great number of visitors; access to the park is easy and regulated by the Park authorities. The diverse environment that characterises the Parco dell'Abbazia makes this protected area very fertile ground for environmental education: many schools visit the park to study the natural, agricultural, landscape, historical, architectural and social aspects of the territory as well as the evolution of the relationship between man and nature. Visit the park and enjoy this fascinating landscape where history, nature and the work of man merge to create a harmonious picture of shapes and colours.
