EMILIA ROMAGNA TRAVEL INFORMATION AND TOURISM SUGGESTIONS
The region of Emilia Romagna is actually two separate territories, Emilia and Romagna, and includes the cities of Bologna, Modena, Forlì Cesena, Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia, Ferrara, Rimini and Ravenna.
No prizes for guessing, but it is important to bear this in mind when your hurtling down the Via Emilia from Piacenza.
Romagna always retained continuity with its Roman past. By contrast, the 8th region of Augusto became known as Longobardia or Reggio di Lombardia following the Lombard invasion, until eventually being baptised Emilia upon the unification of Italy.
In short for today's tourist, Emilia means ham, parmigiano reggiano cheese, balsamic vinegar and Ferrari; Romagna means Sangiovese, cycling, Adriatic coast relaxation and the River Po Delta. Bologna swings both ways.
Almost 50% of Emilia Romagna is flat and do follow the many fine wine roads either side of the Po Valley. The River has also left the region with some of the country's most fertile land and cooperatives.
The territory was always strategically important for trade and the balance of power and many solid fortresses can be visited. The Republic of San Marino is a historic anomaly from those times and conveniently so for a host of reasons.

The month of October is dedicated to 'Piatti della Bilancia' in Campogalliano, province of Modena. It is subtitled 'una rassegna culinaria nel segno dell’equilibrio tra sapori' or 'a culinary exhibition to remember the balance of flavours.' Or the important role the humble scale has had in Italian regional cuisine. Campogalliano is the only town in Italy which has a museum dedicated to scales.
