About Emilia-RomagnaEmilia-Romagna in the fertile Po River Valley is the gastronomic heartland of Italy, and a foodie's paradise. From the famous Prosciutto crudo from Parma, aged balsamic from Modena and Parmagiano cheese, to ragu from Bologna, truffles, salami and tortellini, there’s a wealth of delicious flavours to be found in markets, cafés and restaurants, all accompanied by the finest wines from Malvasia, Trebbiano, Barbera and Sangiovese vines. The region has a rich history too, with powerful Renaissance families such as Este, Farnese and Bentivoglio having ruled and patronised the city states, leaving behind majestic architecture and spectacular art collections. Music is also an important part of Emilia-Romagna's heritage, with Bologna's Teatro Communale, one of Italy's greatest opera houses, a highlight.
