Province of Modena, Emilia‑Romagna
The Province of Modena stretches from Lombardy to the North to Tuscany in the south, and can be divided into three areas, a plain to the north, hills in the center and mountains to the south, with the highest summit being Monte Cimone, that dominates a large part of the landscape.
It is a province of great history, having been an independent state, the Duchy of Modena and Reggio, for many centuries before the unity of Italy, and has presently one of the highest living standards in Italy, thanks to a flourishing industrial sector, comprising world-renowned companies as Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini.
