Predappio stands on a hilly site in the valley of the Rabbi river at about 130 metres above the sea-level. The municipal territory extends over an area of 91,64 square kilometres and has a population of around 6163 inhabitants.

Surrounded by valuable vineyards producing first-quality sangiovese, the most appreciated and widespread Romagna wine, the present town core was distinctly separated from the old Predappio (called Predappio Alta in March 1936).

The village, which has called for the recognition of “fortified town”, is the result of Benito Mussolini’s commitment to value all the places of his hometown. The tiny hamlet of Dovia, located on a plain, became on 30th August 1925 the chief town in the municipal territory (Predappio Nuova).

Built between the Twenties and the Forties of the 20th century, Predappio is like a truly “urban museum” reflecting the original urban and architectural styles of the Twenties inspired to the triumph of rationalism and planned by the most important architects of that time, such as Florestano Di Fausto, Cesare Bazzani, Cesare Valle, Arnaldo Fuzzi and Gustavo Giovannoni, who gave the town a relevant architectonic value.

Predappio was also the native town of Adone Zoli, a catholic antifascist who played important political roles in the battle for the Liberation of Italy and during the Italian Republic of which he also was Prime Minister.

From the geological point of view the territory of Predappio shows rocky formations with a predominance of porous limestone (spungone) and is rich of sulphur and chalk fields. The territory of Predappio features highly cultivated areas with a huge abundance of vines, orchards, cereals and fodder cultures. From the naturalistic point of view, this area includes some interesting peculiarities such as erosion gullies recalling a lunar landscape and representing, despite their desolate sterility, a world of great beauty and high naturalistic value.

What to see: the Church of Sant'Agostino, the Church of San Cassiano in Pennino, the Fortress and the village of Predappio Alta.
