San Giovanni in Persiceto is home to Giulio Cesare Croce and his character Bertoldo, as well as a famous carnival.

The medieval historical centre, with its original concentric layout, contains numerous notable buildings: in the central square there are the Collegiate Church of San Giovanni Battista (temporarily under restoration), with its paintings by Guercino, Albani, Gandolfi and Guardassoni, the Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall), from the 15th-century, and the Communal Theatre, with its complete 18th-century structure.

Not to be missed is the fantastic Piazzetta Betlemme, renamed “La piazzetta degli inganni” (The Little Square of Tricks) due to its multicoloured 'trompe l’oeil' by the famous set designer Gino Pellegrini.

Home to saints and traditional country products, San Giovanni boasts a high concentration of museums, such as the Museum of the Sky and the Earth, the Archaeological Environmental Museum and the Museum of Sacred Art.
