Emilia-Romagna

Emilia-Romagna is a region of Northern Italy. It has a roughly rectangle triangular shape, bounded by Adriatic Sea at East, the Po river at North and the Appennini[?] at South. A densely populated region (expecially in the plain half), Emilia Romagna is one of the richest Italian regions, and is generally regarded as also one of the nicest to live in. The Emilia-Romagna cuisine is one of the most characteristic of Italy.

Agriculture is the most important economical activity: grain, potato, mais[?], tomato and onion are the most importants, along with fruit and grape for the production of wine (of which the most famous is perhaps Lambrusco[?]). Cattle breeding is also highly developed, expecially for pig and bovine breeding.

Emilia-Romagna industry is also healthy , expecially the food industry and the tourism along the Adriatic Sea coastline.

The principal city is Bologna, an historical, cultural and entertainment center of national importance. Other important cities include Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia[?], Modena, Rimini, Ferrara, Forlė[?] and Ravenna.
