- To see
Carpi is located a short distance from Modena. It is worth going there to see the spectacular Piazza dei Martiri, the third largest square in Italy. Palazzo dei Pio, the Cathedral, theater, Palazzo Comunale and Mercato del Grano are located on the square.
Palazzo dei Pio, composed of different buildings dating from the Middle Ages to the 18th century, stands on the eastern side of the square. The Pio family transformed the first fortress into a flamboyant Renaissance dwelling. The interior of the building can be visited in Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
