Emilia Romagna: introduction
A mosaic of emotions. From the bright colors of the Riviera to the treasures conserved within its art cities, from the aromas of good food to the warmth of its people, honest and sincere like their land.
Emilia Romagna stretches across almost the entire width of Northern Italy, encompassing a landscape of many contrasts – from the Apennine foothills to the Adriatic coast, to the rich alluvial plain of the Po river. Emilia Romagna was once a complex of small dukedoms, governed by noble families such as the Este in Ferrara and the Farnese in Parma. As a result, the countryside is dotted with castles and fortresses, many of which have survived the passage of time remarkably unscathed. The region is most famous, however, for its culinary specialities, including the renowned Prosciutto di Parma, Aceto Balsamico di Modena and Parmigiano Reggiano. The university city of Bologna's reputation as Italy’s gastronomic capital is well deserved – taste to believe.
