Solarolo Rainerio

The old parish church of St. Stephen, in the centre of the village, was rebuilt in neoclassical style in the last century. Inside, it preserves important paintings, including two paintings by Galeazzo Campi dating back to 1528, author of a famous self-portrait now in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. There are numerous nineteenth-century villas inspired by the neoclassical style, scattered around the countryside, typically belonging to the Lords of these areas. In particular it is worth mentioning Villa Recusani, Villa Zaccaria (now the Town Hall) and Villa Pralasca Fontana, all characterized by linear and sober façades. Every year on the first Sunday of September, Solarolo hosts an event of great interest and a great attraction, linked to the tradition of these rural areas: the Palio. Preceded by a historical parade in costumes typical of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, during the Palio a number of games, including the famous donkey race, take place throughout the various village districts. In Solarolo visitors can also view a large collection of objects representing country life and customs.
