Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the ancient capital of the Duchy of Este holds in its heart veritable architectural masterpieces: the Cathedral, the Ghirlandina and Piazza Grande. The eighteenth-century Palazzo Ducale, which was the seat of the Este court, now hosts the famous Military Academy; the Gallery and the Estense Library, which contain works of art of inestimable value.

Alongside the cultural interest that attracts us during the visit, Modena involves us further with his social life; the walk under the arcades of Via Emilia captures our attention with the shop windows of the boutiques of the center, our hearing is mixed and confused among the tolling of bells and the chatter in the streets, the smells of bread, of “gnocco fritto” and of “erbazzone”. Those come out from the ovens and tease our appetite.
