The Emilia-Romagna region
Stretching from the Po to the north and the Apennines to the south, this region is considered one of the most fertile and productive of Italy, thanks to the influence of the Adriatic Sea which mitigates the climate in the coastal area.
Thanks to this contrast between the mountains and the sea, the Emilia Romagna offers visitors stunning scenery, wonders for the eyes and spirit in a mixture of colors and scents of the earth, joy, music, film, art.
Lovers of sea, sun and fun choosing the Adriatic coast, with the longest beach in Europe. Here you can take advantage of equipped facilities for sport and leisure.
Towns such as Rimini, Riccione and Cattolica are synonymous with excellent tourist accommodation, relaxation and fun.
You can also admire the beauty of the Apennines, perhaps visiting Parma and Piacenza walking or on horseback or on foot through the beautiful parks and wonderful nature reserves.
Space to the club with a wide range of spas, among which those of Salsomaggiore and Bagno di Romagna.
The artistic culture has found fertile ground in this land and has planted its roots. Witness the works of Verdi and the poetry of the pastures up to the Fellini film dell'inconfondibile, became a myth thanks to his many masterpieces, whose screenplays have come to life in these places.
In Emilia Romagna, one may become a spectator at any place, it only remains to choose the show from an endless list.
Emilia Romagna is adjacent to the third smallest country in Europe, the Republic of San Marino.
Bologna is the largest city (and the capital) of Emilia-Romagna. It is the seventh most populated in Italy.
The city, the first settlements of which date back to at least one 1000 BC, has always been an important urban centre first under the Etruscans (Velzna/Felsina) and the Celts (Bona), then under the Romans (Bononia), then again in the Middle Ages, as a free municipality (for one century it was the fifth largest European city based on population). Home to the oldest university in the world, University of Bologna, founded in 1088, Bologna hosts thousands of students who enrich the social and cultural life of the city. Famous for its towers and lengthy porticoes, Bologna has a well-preserved historical centre (one of the largest in Italy) thanks to a careful restoration and conservation policy which began at the end of the 1970s, on the heels of serious damage done by the urban demolition at the end of the 19th century as well as that caused by wars.
An important cultural and artistic centre, its importance in terms of landmarks can be attributed to homogenous mixture of monuments and architectural examples (medieval towers, antique buildings, churches, the layout of its historical centre) as well as works of art which are the result of a first class architectural and artistic history. Bologna is also an important transportation crossroad for the roads and trains of Northern Italy, where many important mechanical, electronic and nutritional industries have their headquarters.
Bologna is home to prestigious cultural, economic and political institutions as well as one of the most impressive trade fair districts in Europe. In 2000 it was declared European capital of culture and in 2006, a UNESCO “city of music”. The city of Bologna was selected to participate in the Universal Exposition of Shanghai 2010 together with 45 other cities from around the world. Bologna is also one of the wealthiest cities in Italy, often ranking as one of the top cities in terms of quality of life in the country: in 2011 it ranked 1st out of 107 Italian cities.
Bologna is situated on the edge of the Po Plain at the foot of the Apennine Mountains, at the meeting of the Reno and Savena river valleys. As Bologna's two main watercourses flow directly to the sea, the town lies outside of the drainage basin of the River Po. The Province of Bologna stretches from the western edge of the Po Plain on the border with Ferrara to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. The centre of the town is 54 meters above sea level (while elevation within the municipality ranges from 29 m in the suburb of Corticella to 300 m in Sabbiuno and the Colle della Guardia). The Province of Bologna stretches from the Po Plain into the Apennines, its highest point being the peak of Corno alle Scale (in Lizzano in Belvedere) at 1,945 m above sea level.
