Reggio Emilia

Reggio Emilia City of Italian tricolour

Reggio is famous for being the place where the Italian tricolour was invented. It was an engineer and public employee, called Ludovico Bolognini, that designed the new white, red and green flag. His project was selected as the symbol of the Cispadane Republic by the delegates of Reggio Emilia, Modena, Ferrara and Bologna in 1797. It was later adopted by the unified Italian Kingdom and then handed on to the Republic. A model of the original flag is kept at the Sala (and Museo) del Tricolore housed in the town hall in Piazza Prampolini.
