  • Large Renaissance church

    Close to the Oratorio of San Sebastiano, I saw another church in a very sorry state. I can’t remember the name of this church, but its size was impressive. On one side, you could see the places where the windows were supposed to be – closed by bricks. A beautiful building that surely deserves restoration.

    Forlí’s landmark was erected on the remains of a chapel which burnt down in 1173. It was finished in 1180 and compared to other buildings of similar age, it did not suffer from that many changes.

    If someone is interested in military aircraft and you are close by the airport, take a small walk to the right when standing in front of the terminal. A small collection of old italian military aircraft can be seen behind the fence. I was hoping to see a DC-3 or some other old passenger aircraft, but I didn’t found any…

    Piadina on the making!

    by Mundus Written Oct 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is wihtout a doubt the most famous speciality of the entire Romagna region, as well one of the oldest.

    The term "piada" seems to have derived from the Greek "plakous", which means "cake" or "bun". It is prepared somewhat diferently depending on which area of Romagna you are in, altough the two main factors which vary are the thickness and the diameter.

    The ingredients are flour, lard, yeast, water and salt. Piadinas are served with cold cuts, cheese, vegetables, or any other favorite ingredients.
