Matilde di Canossa


Recently, by the law 44 of 1989, the Region Emilia-Romagna gave dignity and legitimation to an historical and cultural area, set around the town of Reggio Emilia, embracing lands and regions from Parma to Modena to Ferrara, all characterized by an analogus landscape and by similar ancient fortifications. A private-public society was founded then, at the Castle of Matilde di Canossa on the 5 March 1994, to give emphasis to the majestic beauty of this area. These charming hills, grand in their simple and severe beauty, spotted by old castles, ancient parishes and historical villages, still flourish of colours and beauties and impressive oenogastronomical traditions, memory of the vigourous life animating the area in the Middle ages.
A cultivated and passionate national and international tourism qualifies these lands as one of the most sublime corners of the emilian region.
The charming traditions of the age of Matilde di Canossa, exhibited during the costume festivals, contributed to harmonize the cultural identities of the area while focalizing on the beautiful figure of their countess and on her times, when these hills hosted the lively heart of the european culture, between the XI and the XII centuries
