Like much of Italy, Emilia-Romagna's borders have changed considerably over the years. Its current borders were established in 1947, from remnants of several Papal states. The western half, Emilia, is traditionally associated with a more northern outlook. Romagna is heavily influenced by the artistic, cultural, and political mindset of the south. Because agriculture has always thrived along the Po River, the region offers gastronomic treats not found elsewhere in the country. Prosciutto di Parma and Parmesan cheese, for instance, originate from Emilia-Romagna.

stroll thorugh ravenna's market
The Italians are experts at display. As you walk through the marketplace, you realize your life may not be complete without buying those four inch heels made in vivid bright blue and covered in sequins. Dodging bikes and children to buy snakeskin swimsuits and cheese is just one of the perks when you shop at Ravenna's Marvelous Market.

Reading a guidebook before you go anywhere is always preferable to not reading one. Nevertheless, lots of pertinent facts about an area get overlooked in guidebooks. Veteran Ravenna visitor, Hannalou Coco, gives you information you won't get anywhre else to enhance your Italian experience.
