Living in Cremona

Cremona is in the heart of Italian agricultural food production. The city is ideal for living and studying. Cremona boasts Roman origins and a long history of agriculture interwoven with art and culture. This can be seen in the historic centre, organised around the central piazza and its medieval and Renaissance monuments: the cathedral, the baptistery, the tower and the council buildings.

In this lively and hospitable city, where gastronomic pleasures are valued as much as hard work, we can still find the panoramic views and the intellectual stimuli that inspired the music of Claudio Monteverdi, the painting of Sofonisba Anguissola in the late Renaissance, and the many generations of Cremonese lutists.

Sport and culture are at home in Cremona, as can be seen in the indoor and outdoor sports facilities, the cinemas, the opera and theatre seasons, and the international character of the concert and dance cycles which are held in the city.

Cremona is easy to reach, being directly linked with other cities in Lombardy and the main centres of Piedmont, Emilia Romana and Veneto.

In a few hours by train or car, one can reach all the major art cities in Italy (Venice, Florence and Roma) as well as the Alps and the Mediterranean sea.
