Ravenna (Emilia Romagna)

Ravenna is the capital city of the Province of Ravenna, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. Although an inland city, Ravenna is connected to the Adriatic Sea by the Candiano Canal. It is known for its well-preserved late Roman and Byzantine architecture, and has eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city annually hosts the Ravenna Festival, one of Italy's prominent classical music gatherings. Opera performances are held at the Teatro Alighieri while concerts take place at the Palazzo Mauro de André as well as in the ancient Basilica of San Vitale and Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe. Chicago Symphony Orchestra music director Riccardo Muti, a longtime resident of the city, regularly participates in the festival, which invites orchestras and other performers from around the world.

What others are saying about Emilia Romagna

@FGan asks:

My father died intestate in Italy 30 years ago. It was his verbal request that the apartment he owned with my mother be inherited by my eldest brother, which the family (my other 3 brothers and myself) agreed to, by signing a letter stating our acceptance.

@Mark D asks:

I love Italy - the music, culture, food and language. Would love to move there.I'm self-employed and run my own business in the UK in a technical field and one where Italy appears to be seeking people to fill.

Hi Everyone, I am looking at buying a very old property in Italy that currently does not have power or water connected to the site. I am wondering if anyone has any experience around the cost or process for connect power to a property in a situation like this?  Thanks!Laura
