The region with the capital Bologna is located in the north of Italy. It stretches from the Adriatic Sea in the east with the Romagna area to the inland Emilia area in the west.

The western part of Emilia was divided into the duchies of Parma and Modena, which were a constant bone of contention between the Habsburgs and the Bourbons. The name derives from the Via Aemilia, built by the Romans in 187 BC to connect the cities of Piacenza and Rimini. The eastern...
