Emilia-Romagna Region

Emilia-Romagna: the crossroads of Europe

The territory of Emilia-Romagna comprises the provinces of Bologna, Ferrara, Modena, Parma, Reggio Emilia, Piacenza, Rimini, Ravenna and Forlì-Cesena.

Emilia-Romagna takes its name from the old Roman consular road – the Via Emilia or Emilian Way – that crosses the entire territory and has linked Rome to the heart of Europe for over 2,000 years. It boasts an enviable geographical position making it an ideal link between northern and southern Italy, as well as connecting the Mediterranean with northern Europe.

Emilia-Romagna is situated in central-northern Italy, in the heart of the country’s most industrialised area.

Its efficient network of infrastructure, strategic geographical position and excellent connections to the rest of Italy and the main European cities make the region a key business hub.
