Emilia-Romagna is an Italian region, located in the north-eastern sector of our beautiful country – “Bel Paese”. The name “Emilia” dates back to the Roman Augustan age, it refers to the street built in the 2nd century BC upon the will of the consul – Marco Emilio Lepido. “Via Emilia” has always been a very important commercial street and way of connecting thriving urban centres. It begins in the north-west with Piacenza, then continues through south-eastern area towards Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, Forlì-Cesena and finally ends on the Adriatic coast in Rimini.
Nowadays, the art of superb Italian lifestyle continues to flow in this order: culture, nature and good food. Emilia-Romagna’s fair and congress infrastructure, as well as its accessible automotive and food factories make this region more than suitable for business and tourism.
