Elegant hotel in downtown Reggio Emilia

If you're a modern art lover, you can admire the works in the Maramotti Collection, at the Spazio Gerra and the recent permanent collections of Luciano Fabro Robert Morris and Sol Lewitt,  in buildings downtown along with works by other modern artists.

We also suggest you visit the Civic Museums. At the Museo del Tricolore - that will thrill you with the history of the birth of the national flag in Reggio Emilia - there is an interesting section dedicated to the Renaissance. The nearby Galleria Parmeggiani offers three brilliant collections from the nineteenth century: period items, paintings and furniture.

Lastly, Reggio Emilia is famous for the nineteenth century Romolo Valli Municipal Theater, one of the most beautiful and functional theaters in Italy, with extraordinary gilded stucco decor and a radiant Neo-Classic facade. Luciano Pavarotti debuted at the Valli Theater and the first opera composed by the native composer, Alberto Franchetti, was performed here in 1888. Nearby, you'll find the Ariosto Theater with its late Art Nouveau frescos.
