BAZZANO Travel Guide & Hotels
Bazzano is a village of 6.917 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. The first settlements are very old, as evidenced by the remains found in the area and now exposed into the Crespellani Museum, while its name derives from the Latin, probably from "badianum", which means domain of an abbey, and indeed Bazzano has been for a long time under the control of the Abbey of Nonantola, which in turn referred to the city of Modena. Given its border position, a castle was built in Bazzano, destroyed during a siege and rebuilt at the end of 1200 by Azzo VII d'Este. The fortress was also one of the headquarters of the Capitani di Montagna.
Today Bazzano is a town hall and also the municipal seat of the new Municipality of Valsamoggia, created by the merger of the former municipalities of Bazzano, Crespellano, Monteveglio, Savigno and Castello di Serravalle.
what to see and what to do in BAZZANO
At less than 10 kilometers of Bazzano, and precisely in San Cesario sul Panaro, all motor enthusiasts can finally visit the Horacio Pagani Museum, which opened last December. Inside the Museum the entire collection of Pagani's projects has been exhibited, from the Argentine period, to the one in the Lamborghini, up to the latest models, while a historical section based on interactive systems and films is under construction. Of course, cars could not be missing, and when we talk about Pagani, Zonda and Huayra, supercars of the highest performances, come together in a truly unique collection. But for those who are not content to look only at the finished product, however impressive, in the Pagani Museum it is also possible to do a Factory Tour, an interesting tour in the Pagani factory, where you can see these supercars literally take life.
EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS
The typical product of Bazzano is Chasselas, a very thin-skinned grape with round grains, particularly appetizing, originating from Lebanon and imported from the Phoenicians.
