06 Jun A trip to Faenza, Brisighella, Imola & Dozza
Yesterday June 5th the BlogVille blogger had a trip to Faenza, Brisighella, Imola & Dozza.
Faenza is a city in province of Ravenna that is worldwide known for its pottery [official website of Terre di Faenza].
The International Ceramics Museum (MIC) founded in 1908 hosts a collection unique in the world for the breadth of epochs and geographical origins, and has a rich section dedicated to Faenza pottery from the Renaissance.
Brisighella is a medieval and thermal town located in the lower valley of the River Lamone, just a few kilometers from Faenza. It is one of the “Borghi più belli d’Italia” and boasts also other important labels such as “Città Slow” and “Città dell’Olio e del Vino” [Oil & Wine City].
Imola is situated on the banks of River Santerno, almost halfway between the city of Bologna and the sunny beaches of the Riviera Romagnola. The city is renowned all around the world for its famous racetrack: the “Circuito Enzo e Dino Ferrari”, built in the 50s, still welcomes sporting events of international importance.
Dozza is a medieval village located 6 km far from Imola, and is situated on the crest of a gentle hill dominating the Sellustra river valley. It is another one of the “Borghi più belli d’Italia“. The town is best known for two important events: “Wine Festival” and “Biennale del Muro Dipinto” [Biennial Exhibition of the Painted Wall]. In the historical centre the fortress Rocca Sforzesca hosts the Enoteca Regionale dell’Emilia Romagna, that gathers the best of EmiliaRomagna’s wines [official website].
