Carpi, a pearl of the Renaissance: that appeared to the German travellers of the late XIX the ancient seigniory of Pio and even today bears witness to the recently restored Pio Palace - home of the most museums of the city.

Nowadays Carpi is a lively city, thanks to its industries and handcraft, trade and its commercial and cultural exchange, its artistic and scientific life. It's a city that never stops and offers a packed calendar of events throughout the year.

The town keeps a remarkable artistic heritage with testimonies of the Middle Ages. Piazzale Re Astolfo, the old town centre is still the heart of the medieval city, onto which face "the Sagra", included in the European circuit of Romanesque buildings, the Palazzo dei Pio, and the Loria factory, where straw hats were once made and which is now the civic library.
