A piazza that during the week is filled with market stalls can be surprisingly empty on a Sunday morning.I began my day with a visit to the Duomo, or Reggio Emilia’s main church. Under the arcade of Palazzo del Comune are various monuments.The Museum of the Tricolore is housed in the rooms adjacent to the famous Hall of the Tricolore, the room where the Italian flag was first displayed. My main interest in visiting the museum was to see the actual hall, but that was not to be. It is not included in the visit to the museum, which I found odd, and a little disappointing.Another of the city’s main religious buildings is the beautiful Tempio della Beata Vergine della Ghiara, or the Basilica della Madonna della Ghiara. The marble monument in front of the church marks the spot where a miraculous image of the Madonna once stood. The Museo dei Cappuccini was, unfortunately for me, closed. I headed back to the piazza to catch the evening’s concert. First up was the artist Flo.The headliner for the evening was Angela Baraldi.
Next up: the city of balsamic vinegar – Modena!
