Where it is
Fiorenzuola D’Arda, which has always been a transit hub, is located on the Piacenza section of the Via Francigena, crossed by the A1 Milan-Bologna motorway and the railway network with a station.
The medieval collegiate church of San Fiorenzo is certainly the most interesting building, then we advise you to visit the Convent of San Giovanni, the Church of the Beata Vergine di Caravaggio, Palazzo Grossi, (private), and Palazzo Bertamini Lucca (private).
On the table
Anolini di Formaggio, a cheese filled pasta, is the typical dish for holidays.
Chisulén are fried dough, excellent accompanied by local cold cuts.
La Zobia is the traditional poor peasant carnival that has been celebrated since the late Middle Ages in Fiorenzuola.
On Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, Fiorenzuola rediscovers one of its ancient traditions: the game of Pont a l’Ov, which gives life to a popular folkloric event, the traditional egg breaking competition.
