Etymology (name origin)
It is a compound name. The first part is related to the Aemilia way, an important Roman road which linked Rimini to Piacenza, named after the Roman consul Marcus Aemilius Lepidus. Romagna originates from Romania, a Latin word utilized during the Byzantine rule to define the lands that belonged to the Greek-Roman Emperor, because Italy was then split between Lombards and Greeks.
Geography
Emilia-Romagna borders Veneto and Lombardy to the northeast, Piedmont to the west, Liguria and Tuscany to the southwest, Marche to the southeast, and the Adriatic Sea to the east. It comprises the two historic regions of Emilia and Romagna. About a half of the region is constituted by Padan Plain, the largest plain of the country, crossed by the longest stream of water of Italian Pensinsula, the river Po that is 652 km long. This region is drained by many Po tributaries. The rest of Emilia-Romagna territory is split by the hill lands and part of the Tuscan Apennine. Emilia-Romagna is the second richest region of Italy.
