Emilia Romagna at your home


Emilia Romagna at your home

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

These are unusual days, during which everyone have to give up the regular habits and we are all called to put common sense and public spirit at first place.

We of the #inEmiliaRomagna Tourism Web Office are also working from our homes and – not only to follow the government decree, but also and above all for a shared editorial choice – we have decided to focus our regional narrative only on those activities that can be carried out or enjoyed by staying inside home.

We do this because we don’t want to induce people to travel in these delicate days, but we also do this because there’s a lot to discover about Emilia-Romagna even “from a distance” thanks to the web, and we want to valorize it.

Below there is a list of things to listen or watch that we have selected to bring Emilia-Romagna directly to your home.
The list is constantly updated and if you have something to add to the list, just put a comment below.
