The via Æmilia , or way émilienne is a Roman road built by the Roman Consul Marcus Æmilius Lepidus. It connects in straight line Plaisance to Rimini, while crossing many cities of the Emilie-Romagna (area made up of the Emilie and Romagna), area to which it gave her name.
The crossed main cities are of Roman foundation, or were refondées by the Romans: Pleasure (Placentia), Fidenza (Fidentia), Parma, Reggio (Regium It), Modena (Mutina), Bologna (Bononia), Imola (Cornelii Forum), Faenza (Faventia), Forlì (Livii Forum), Césène (Caesena), Rimini (Ariminum).
Via Æmilia united two important Roman ways: the Via Flaminia, consular road which left Rome “caput mundi”, and arrived at Rimini, “colonia augustea”; and the Via Postumia, which of Pleasure joined Aquilée, last important center of the Venezia just at the border of the Italic province, i.e. of the Italian peninsula, subjected directly to the Roman capacity.
Currently it via Æmilia is classified Trunk road n°9.
