Emilia Romagna

emilia romagna

This Northern Italian region belongs to Europe's most important economic powerhouses. It is not only one of the wealthiest regions in Italy, but in the whole of the European Union. Its population is just over 4.3 million, and its area is almost as big as that of Sardinia, hence it is one of the country's largest regions. Its economy is of great strength: Although Emilia-Romagna has a thriving and healthy industrial sector, it nevertheless boasts the biggest agricultural sector in all of Italy! Its automotive production is of world importance, as can be indicated by the following three extremely glorious names: Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati.

The ancient trade and academic city of Bologna is the region's capital. Nowadays, the city is also associated with the so-called Bologna process, which since 1999 has successfully been standardizing higher education throughout the EU.

Bologna has always been an intellectual center: Its university was founded as early as 1088, which makes it Europe's (and thus practically the world's) oldest university. In fact, the very word "university" was coined upon its creation. Bologna today has a population of less than 400 thousand. It is awash with historic monuments, among them the legendary and iconic unfinished San Petronio Basilica.

Emilia-Romagna has highly diverse landscapes: There are mountains, hills, and plains to be found. Its vegetation is very varied as well. Naturally, the region is a magnet for tourists. Possibly its biggest asset is its combination of economic prowess with natural beauty and a long and rich history.

Another world-famous place within Emilia-Romagna is the ancient coastal town and seaside resort of Rimini. One of its attractions is Italy's biggest miniature park, called Italia in Miniatura. It has been said that visiting it is just as impressive as a trip all-over Italy - but certainly a lot less time-consuming. The architects of Rimini like to go there often to get artistic inspiration.
