Postcards from Parma
Fidenza - The Communal Palace
Like many towns hugging the line of Po, Fidenza owed its early prominence to via Aemilia (the old Roman road). The town assumed greater importance as a medieval way station for pilgrims en route to Rome. Placed halfway between Parma and Piacenza, Fidenza shows many signs of Farnese's and Bourbons' rule. The Communal Palace was built in Gothic style between 1270 and 1354.
