Overview

Reggio nell'Emilia is a city in northern Italy, in the Emilia-Romagna region. It has about 171,944 inhabitants and is the main commune (municipality) of the Province of Reggio Emilia.
The inhabitants of Reggio nell'Emilia are called Reggiani, while the inhabitants of Reggio di Calabria are called Reggini.
The old town has a hexagonal form, which derives from the ancient walls, and the main buildings are from the 16th–17th centuries. The commune's territory is totally on a plain, crossed by the Crostolo stream.
Jews began arriving Reggio in the early 15th century. Many Jews were Sephardim from Spain, Portugal and other parts of Italy. Nearly all were fleeing religious persecution. The Jewish community was prosperous and enjoyed considerable growth for the next several hundred years. After the Napoleonic era the Jews of Reggio gained emancipation and began to migrate to other parts of Europe looking for greater economic and social freedom. Thus, the Jewish community in Reggio began to decline. The German occupation during World War II and the Holocaust hastened the decline.
