Emilia Romagna Piacenza
Piacenza is situated in the Po Valley on the right side of the river, at the confluence to the west of the River Trebbia and, in the east to the Nure stream. Its geographic location was militarily strategic and has also determined its current function as an important railway and road hub. Founded as a Latin colony with Cremona by the Romans in 218 b.C., Piacenza was sacked several times due to its boundary location. However, over time it became a powerful colony and one of the most renowned cities of the Padana plain area. Piacenza was governed by bishops from the 9th century to 1090 , then it became a city-state and one of the founders of Lombardy League. Afterwards, it was ruled by the Visconti and by the Sforza until 1449. It became part of the State of the Church and then capital of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza. In 1748 the reign of Philip of Spain began. After the Napoleonic Age, Piacenza was ruled by Marie-Louise of Austria and finally by the House of the Bourbons until 1859.
Its thousand year old history has contributed to create its relevant artistic heritage. Monuments of great interest are the Cathedral, the Basilica of Sant’Antonino, the Basilica of San Savino and the renaissance Basilica of Santa Maria di Campagna as well as the various aristocratic and bourgeois palaces. From these comes the definition of "the city of palaces" which defines Piacenza par excellence. Besides the Museum of Natural History and the Ricci Oddi Modern Art Gallery the town has different medieval and renaissance museums. The Piacenza territory is mostly hilly and mountainous, but it is also divided into different valleys. Many natural parks are present such as the Provincial Park of Mount Moria and the Reserve of the Piacenza Area.
