Modena - Elegante e antica

Elegant and ancient, Modena is a rare and precious city. It is one of the capitals of Italian gastronomy, but it is also heir to very important historical events, which have permeated so many of its palaces and monuments. Such as the Town Hall, adorned with splendid frescoes, or the solemn Military Academy. Up to the great religious memories, one for all the imposing Cathedral, begun by the architect Lanfranco as early as 1099 and wrapped in an extraordinary sculptural frieze due to a brilliant artist, Wiligelmo. Cathedral flanked by one of the symbols of the city , the tall bell tower called 'Ghirlandina' by the people of Modena, designed by Arrigo da Campione in 1261.Director: Gigi Oliviero
