HistoryEdit

It was fortified by Modena and Reggio Emilia to defend the shores of the Po river from attacks by Mantua, who captured it in 1125. From 1332 it became part of the territories of the Gonzaga.

During World War II it experienced thirty-two bombing raids by the British and American airforces. During the final offensive in Italy, it was liberated by the 88th Infantry Division on 24 April 1945.
