MOLINELLA | Bologna
MOLINELLA Travel Guide
Molinella is a town of 15,576 inhabitants in the province of Bologna.
The name probably derives from the large number of mills in the area and fundamental for the economy, while its origins can be traced back to the Villanovan civilization, but there are also evidence of Roman and Gallic settlements, even if the first document in which Molinella it’s mentioned dates back to 1322.
At the end of the thirteenth century there were fights between the Este family and the City of Bologna, until in 1500 Molinella became part of the Church. In 1630 it was hit by the plague, like many other areas of Northern Italy.
