Travel Tips for Reggio Emilia
Reggio Emilia has the best kindergardens......
Reggio Emilia is a pleasant town in Norther Italy, in Emilia-Romagna region. It was founded by Romans many years B.C. and has now 150.000 inhabitants. It's world known because of its fantastic "grana" cheese Parmiggiano Reggiano, its delicious traditional balsamic vinegar and because of its wonderful kindergardens. In the early '90s the American magazine Newsweek has recognize Reggio Emilia's kindergardens (I mean schools up to 6 years) as to be THE BEST IN THE WORLD.

PALAZZO MAGNANI, Corso Garibaldi 29, Old town centre
It is an ancient building in Corso Garibaldi (where you cannot miss a visit at the Basilica della Ghiara) dated back 17th century. The present look dates back to the beginning of 19th century, when the building was property of Magnani Family. In the corner with Via Fordibelli, please note the "Giano", probably handcrafted by......(let me check) in the beginning of 16th century. Palazzo Magnani was purchased by the Province of Reggio in the 80's and it is now a very important exibition place for the town. The exibitions are either of moder arts or photografy. Sometimes, usually during the week end, the art director of Palazzo Magnani, Mr Sandro Parmiggiani, leads interesting guided tours (in Italian) of the present exibition (normally without paying no extra money except for the entrance fee). Ask to the reception. There is also a very nice inner space and, besides, a nice cafeteria called Soqquadro. The entrance fee depends on the exibition but generally is very fare, about 6 euros for adults. For Italians: do not forget your ARCI card, if you have one, it will let you some reduction.
The centre of Reggio Emilia
For me Reggio Emilia was just a train stop between Modena and Parma during trips to Milan. This was true until recently. One day I decided to go with friends to see a comedy in a theatre in Reggio, and we went there rather early in the day to explore the town. We were happy we did it..
Reggio Emilia is the city of Ermanno Cavazzoni, the author of a book I love. The book is “Il poema dei lunatici” and it inspired Federico Fellini’s last film “La voce della luna” (1990). Cavazzoni himself collaborated to the script of this film, that had Roberto Benigni as its protagonist.
