Foliage_Modena_Gingko_cover

Autumn is the best time to enjoy warm colors, don’t you think so?
If I think about autumn, I immediately imagine the various shades of red, orange, yellow and brown. Well, for me this is a season that kidnaps and gives you the opportunity to continue to go out, especially in sunny days, to admire the changing of nature… and the foliage is a wonderful sight!
Over time, I have identified my places to go in Modena and in its province, to dive myself into these wonderful visions and “fill up” with incredible autumn colors: here I tell you which are my 4 favorite places to admire this phenomenon!

CascateBucamante_AppenninoModenese_Serramazzoni_coverok_MyModenaDiary

I often wonder if there are places where to spend some peaceful hours near Modena!

A dive into the gastronomic tradition of our territory with Bottega Portici, the new Emilian casual food format

Collaborations, My Travels in Emilia - Stefania Fregni - July 30, 2018

Fresh pasta is a precious good, a tradition deeply rooted in our territory. It represents an art, the one of know-how but above all the one of the good life that characterizes our Emilia.
So, when projects that celebrate and export this way of being born, I am sincerely happy to support them. Recently I was guest at Bottega Portici, a new format of casual food that originates in Emilia-Romagna, that proposes quality and traditional food at the right price. Here, I tell you better what it is and I how was my experience.

Along the Via Emilia: beyond the province of Modena to discover a territory

My Travels in Emilia - Stefania Fregni - July 24, 2018

ViaEmiliaModena_MyModenaDiary

When I think about the story that I can tell you on Modena, I often find myself immersed in a much larger ecosystem that goes beyond the city and its province. There are many situations connected together, all united by our being Emilian: an identity that is well explained simply thinking about the Via Emilia.

Localism apart, I do not think it is really possible to know a territory without taking a look at what is close to it: neighboring realities have often much in common to really make a clear distinction.
For this reason I would like to explain you here what represents this idea for me and how it can influence the story that I daily make on my city so much that I’ve decide to dedicate a new section on my blog called “Beyond Modena: along the Via Emilia”.

BurgerModena_Mattatoio_02_Pastrami_MyModenaDiary

Collaborations, My personal lists, Suggested Tours - Stefania Fregni - January 23, 2018

Have you ever wondered what character has your city?  Do you think it is possible to identify its different distinctive features? I think it is.
I’ve always thought that cities, like humans, had a different character that could be captured in certain places and doing certain experiences.
So, in order to organize a tour of Modena made of 5 stops, I’ve tried to think about my city as a real person, whose character is composed of different personalities. Then, I tell you of 5 shades of Modena, 5 experiences that I had having a tour on my territory accompanied by the new T-Roc, in collaboration with Volkswagen MPS Car Modena.

MYMENU: a certainty for the home meal delivery service in Modena

Collaborations, Modena just a click away - Stefania Fregni - December 5, 2017

MyMenu_MyModenaDiary_cover_OK

As I told before several times, I go crazy for digital services, Apps or websites, that can improve our daily life and make us experience new things. So, when I find a new one in the city, I try it immediately and, if I like, it I write about it!
I even also dedicated to this theme a category of the blog, “Modena just a click away”, because I hope that services that can help us to live our cities in a better way can become more and more numerous. After all, how it is practical to pay for parking from our smartphone or wait comfortably at home for our favorite food or shopping ?! 😉
Some time ago I discovered MYMENU, the home meal delivery service that gives us the opportunity to taste comfortably some of our favorite dishes directly at home (or in our office), as if you were at the restaurant. I tell you now my experience.

Tourist attractions and museums - Stefania Fregni - November 5, 2017

MATA stands for Tobacco Manufacturing and it’s one of the new cultural space dedicated to culture opened in last years in Modena. Since 2017 is the location for Fondazione Fotografia’s expositions. This cultural place is set inside a really unique architectural context which combines an historic area, the one of the ex Tobacco Factory, and which has been almost completely returned to the city and to anyone who wants to visit it.
