Emilia-Romagna is a region located in the north of Italy that is fixed between the Apennine Mountains to the south and the River Po to the north. Emilia-Romagna consists of Emilia and Romagna, which were previously separate regions that made the decision to combine in 1947. These two regions were both supporters of the early movement of 1859 to unify Italy and eventually joined as one region, now known as Emilia-Romagna. Emilia-Romagna, Italy currently has nine provinces: Ravenna, Forli-Cesena, Parma, Ferrara, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Piacenza, Rimini and Bologna, the region’s capital. However, in 2014, the government will decrease these to only four provinces and one metropolitan city because the region is trying to cut costs.
