Those who love this kind of place cannot but admire this wonderful Art-Nouveau covered market built in the 1920s. The inspiration came from France; as very few similar constructions have survived, the ‘mercato’ of Modena is one of the finest in Italy.
Behind the wrought iron gates, multicoloured and lively shops sell the typical products of Modena, such as Balsamic Vinegar, Lambrusco Wine, Parmigiano Reggiano, tortellini, Prosciutto and so on. In the middle, a fountain with a statue by Giuseppe Graziosi.
Two other entrance are in via Mondatora and in Piazza XX Settembre.
Note that it is open only until two in the afternoon.
