In the Montagnola park and Piazza VIII Agosto, in 1251 we set up his cattle market, every Friday and Saturday (from dawn to sunset) is a weekly market of the most special of Italy and declared a Historic Market in Emilia Romagna: the Piazzola.

More than 400 stalls where you can find everything. A popular general store where there is loud to a colorful spectacle.
