MORDANO Travel Guide & Hotels
Mordano is a village of 4,747 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. The first settlements date back to Roman times, and the first drainages are just due to the Romans, in addition to the construction of roads with a typical orthogonal grid and the leveling of the land. During the medieval period, Mordano was the center of numerous battles between Imola and Bologna, and over the following centuries was subject to numerous territorial and administrative changes, until it became part of the Church.
what to see and what to do
Today the Motor Valley is a reality on an international level, an area of Emilia Romagna where the main companies producing cars and motorcycles are known and sought out all over the world. On the sites dedicated to tourism, but also on www.motorvalley.com, you can find many holiday packages or activities related to the motor world, able to satisfy fans of any kind, from those who want to run on the track, maybe even with their own car or motorcycle, to those who are more interested in visiting the many museums and collections that are in this area. Among the collections, to remember is definitely the Battilani Collection, which is worth a visit, given the proximity of Mordano and Imola, just a few kilometers. Benito Battilani was the precursor of collecting vintage motorcycle, now much more widespread, and was able to collect particular and extremely rare samples, such as the Condor, equipped with sidecar, of 1924, or Pennazio. The Collection allows you to relive the history of the motorcycle, from the first "evolved bikes" to the latest models.
