MODENA Historical Background
Modena was founded by the Celts

became a part of the Roman Empire
and a major agricultural centre. It was invaded by the Barbarians in the 4th and 5th century. In the 9th Century it was encircled by walls, which protected the city throughout the Middle Ages.

In the 11th century the city became a free municipality. In the 12th and 13th Centuries, Modena was involved in many important political issues including the War between the Guelphs and the Ghibellines and the defeat of Fossalta. In the 14th Century, it was ruled over by many different families including
the d’Este family and the Gonzagas. The D’Este family again ruled from
1796 until 1814. Then the city was governed by Francis IV and Francis V
of the Austria-Este family until 1859. In 1861, when the d’Este sovereignity finally came to its decline, Modena became part of the Kingdom of Italy.
