Bassa Romagna

In the heart of Romagna there is a strip of land, crossed by several waterways and important communication routes, which found itself to be a strategic territory for the Resistance during the Second World War. It is the Bassa Romagna , composed by countless artistic, natural and historical beauties between walks among the beauties of the villages, excursions among the colors of nature or dips in the traditions of Romagna.

The territories of Bassa Romagna are also strongly characterized by the huge presence of beautiful works of street and land art. In these areas there are many interventions by artists who have been invited to tell the story of this territory, among surprising murals and unusual art installations of all kinds.


Lugo has a historic center of considerable interest that bears witness to the development, in various centuries, of civil and religious architecture. The emblematic monument of the city is the Estense Fortress, which today houses the Municipal Residence, whose current appearance dates back to the end of the 16th century. In May, the Palio of the Estense Challenge takes place, a historical reenactment of the passage of Borso d'Este through the city in 1471, on his journey to Rome to be received by the Pope.


Reconstructed as much as possible respecting the original urban plan, Cotignola was almost completely destroyed during World War II. The symbolic monuments of the city are the Tower of Giovanni Acuto, with the civic bell inside, and the Sforza Palace. The town is the protagonist of a big event, the Segavecchia Festival, which takes place every year during the third week of Lent, animating the city with parades of allegorical floats, musical bands, and masks, and culminating with the big witch burning.


Bagnacavallo is one of the most interesting tourist destinations in Ravenna, thanks to its well-preserved historic center, built on an original medieval plan with a unique sinuous structure, and to a large number of noble palaces and religious buildings. Very peculiar for its oval shape and its arcades, Piazza Nuova was built in 1758 to host the city market. The name "Bagnacavallo" derives from a legendary thermal spring that is said to have healed Emperor Tiberius' horse.


Important and modern agricultural hub, Alfonsine is a territory made up of forests, valleys, and swamps that are part of a natural reserve in the Regional Park of the Po Delta. The visitor center for access to the park is the magnificent birthplace of poet Vincenzo Monti, considered the greatest representative of neoclassicism in Italy. Of valuable eighteenth-century architecture, Casa Monti preserves furniture, paintings, relics, and some original editions of the poet's works and also houses the natural history museum of the protected area.

Sant'Agata sul Santerno

The story of Sant'Agata is closely linked to its river, the Santerno, an important communication route between Spina and Etruria since the pre-Roman era. Of the impressive and strategic castle of the town, only one of the two towers survived, now transformed into the Clock Tower, from which you can hear the strikes of the "bell of reason". S. Agata is the village of Custode Marcucci, a renowned luthier, to whom several murals are dedicated.


Fusignano was also hit by bombings during World War II, but several important buildings in the historic center survived: the Church of San Giovanni Battista, which houses a valuable 16th-century painting depicting the "Baptism of Christ" and a painting depicting the "Blessed Virgin Mary, Patron Saint of Fusiniani" from 1570, and the Church of Pio Suffragio, built in 1753, which preserves paintings attributed to Benedetto Del Buono and the Calcagnini votive urn of the Canova school.

Bagnara di Romagna

Beautiful example of a medieval castrum on the plain, Bagnara di Romagna has a center of great charm, completely surrounded by walls. The emblem of the small town is undoubtedly the Sforza Castle, which now houses the Castle Museum dedicated to important archaeological finds that illustrate the history of the village. At the end of June, Popoli Pop Cult Festival animates and colors the town, with performances of dances from around the world, stands dedicated to various ethnic cuisines, and art exhibitions.


Known in Roman times and renowned for the quality of its valley cuisine, Conselice is located in an area where water has always dominated time and rhythms. Of great importance is Villa Verlicchi, a historic 19th-century residence that houses DART (Domus of Arts, Relations and Tourism), a space dedicated to art and culture, with particular attention to contemporary art, capable of hosting events, exhibitions and cultural initiatives of all kinds.

Massa Lombarda

The city of Massa Lombarda owes its name to the numerous families of refugees from the territories of Brescia and Mantua during the 1800s. The town was the site of the II National Exhibition of Fruit Growing, which declared it the Italian capital of fruit, and it is precisely to fruit that the Adolfo Bonvicini Museum is dedicated. One of the most characteristic events in the area is the Festival of Sfogline, where the azdore compete with each other using rolling pins to roll out the dough and make excellent tagliatelle pasta.
