Founded by the Cenomanis around the 7th century BC, Brescello was joined by the Romans who, five centuries later, renamed it Brixellum. It has become one of the most important centers of the Po Valley, given its important strategic position along the Po River.
Brescello is the town where Don Camillo and Peppone films were filmed. In addition to the museum dedicated to the protagonists, you can also admire various places and objects that were present in the films: for example the church or the square adjacent to it, where two bronze statues were placed, each in the middle of the square addicted, portraying Don Camillo and Peppone in the act of greeting each other.
The Reggia di Colorno is a monumental architectural structure, with over 400 rooms, courtyards and courtyards, embraced by the Parma stream, the square and the wonderful recently restored French garden.
Once inhabited by the Sanseverinos, the Farnese, the Bourbons and Maria Luigia of Austria, today it hosts temporary exhibitions and cultural events.
The Gallery of the Ancients, about 97 meters long, is the long, elevated tiled corridor overlooking Piazza d'Armi and connected to Palazzo Giardino. Here was placed the collection of ancient works of Vespasiano, now transferred to Mantua and Austria. The frescoes depict fake architectures, coats of arms, businesses and allegories dear to Vespasiano.
