Reggia di Rivalta Reviews
Partiamo dalla storia si tratta dei resti di una reggia che era stata costruita dal duca d'Este che si era sposata con la nipote del re Sole Carlotta D'Orleans e quest'ultima voleva che la villa fosse... more »Let's start from the story it is the remains of a palace that had been built by the Duke of Este who had married the granddaughter of the Sun King Carlotta D'Orleans and the latter wanted the villa to be in the image and inspired by the palace of Versailles.In the early 700s it was therefore But in 1796 it was occupied by French soldiers, who used it as a military camp and plundered it from the artworks, and when they left they handed it over to a local city committee who took down the most important part of the palace to make us cultivatefields, use bricks to build houses and burn wood in the palace. Currently remains a small part and the small church that has been incorporated into other dwellings, It is a beautiful location where to do relaxing and long walks. In 2005 it was bought by the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, we hope given the history it has, that it manages to wish it.
La Reggia ed il giardino di Rivalta è un luogo straordinario, Da vedere assolutamente, Si tratta dei resti sontuosi di uno dei palazzi, ritenuti all'epoca, nel XVII secolo, tra i più lussuosi al Mondo... more »The Palace and the garden of Rivalta is an extraordinary place, To be seen absolutely, It is the sumptuous remains of one of the palaces, believed at the time, in the seventeenth century, among the most luxurious in the world, comparable with Versailles and with a few others. The construction is due to Princess Charlotte Aglae D'Orleans, daughter of the Regent of France, granddaughter of King Sun, Louis XIV, who settled here with her husband Prince and future Duke of Modena. The Palace was destroyed by the French troops, called the Jacobins, who invaded Reggio, A careful visit will greatly enhance the extraordinary remains, very fascinating, REALLY NOT TO BE
There are no children's games the avenue is not shaded... There is no proper lighting.... immense park dispersive with some bench.... in summer too hot and not fun for kids. The ducal palace in total decay.
Said the rivalta Palace, it is surrounded by a truly immense meadow, of several square kilometers. The renovation of the park will begin shortly, with the new Reggio Emilia event centre set to be built here for festival concerts and performances.
