Excellent food, sea, fun, architectures, luxury cars and the best mosaics in the world: this is Emilia Romagna. The coat of arms used by the region represents in a stylized way the two essential features of the long history of the region: the wavy line of the Po river and theoblique one of the Via Emilia.
Home of the oldest university in the world, Bologna is famous for its towers and long porticos, and has one of the biggest old town in Italy.
The region is based on the work of many SMEs, coperatives and familiar companies carried on for generations. Emilia Romagna is also famous for its "Motor Valley", the place where were born Ducati, Ferrari, Maserati and Pagani.
Today the automotive / industrial sectors, together with food and tourism are the engine of the region economy. Prosciutto di Parma, Modena balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano Reggiano represent timeless culinary icons.
