Food, Friendliness, and Culture

Modena is a gentle city, and the people who live there show it by their smiles and courteous attitudes. A pleasant walk around the city followed by a discovery of the cuisine that is treasured by its inhabitants--this is the delight of Modena to me.
The history of Modena.. once under the rule of the father of Brutus, called the beautiful mutina by Cicero, and later ruled for many years by the Este family who were known to hold grand dinner pageants for their guests.

Military Academy is here

If you walk near the Communal Palace, you will undoubtedly see cadets who are billeted in the area and go to school in the Palace.

Eye Candy of Modena

When you visit the market you will see so many different things to eat. Specializing in using ingredients inside pasta is one of them.
