Between the months of June and July 2012, an archaeological dig ran during the works for the construction of a basement compartment for private commercial use in Reggio Emilia (RE ), Via Croce Bianca 2 / D and some important mosaics of the Roman age were discovered.

Their vision will be publicly available from the month of May at the commercial space “Gustart”, the place of discovery.
One of the things that is immediately evident by walking through the streets of downtown is the Via Emilia of the Roman age. Under a transparent cove,r one can see large blocks of stone about two feet deep, virtually untouched. One of the most spectacular churches is San Prospero (997) on the square. It was founded to preserve the relics of the patron saint of the city. Next we can see the Torre Campanaria. In the nearby Piazza Prampolini (also known as Piazza Grande) we can find the Cattedrale romanica (romanesque Cathedral), il Battistero (Baptistery), il Palazzo del Monte, la Fontana del Crostolo ed infine il Palazzo Municipale.
Reggio Emilia has the honor of the title “Citta’ del Tricolore” because the Italian flag was born, in 1797 during the Cispadana Republic. Inside the Palazzo Comunale there is the Museum of the Tricolore, whose visit is a must for every tourist visiting for the first time our city. Five minutes walking from Piazza Prampolini the Municipal Theatre (1857) is situated: neoclassical style, columns, statues and renaissance atmosphere. The oldest is Teatro Ariosto. Not far away the Civic Museums that contain a large natural history collection, as well as collections of art and archeology. From here you reach the church most fascinating of Reggio: the rich and the Baroque Basilica della Ghiara and then the Ducal Palace, headquarters of the province and of the prefecture.
