Matilda of Canossa, called the “Great Countess,” was a principal figure of European medieval history, an exceptional case for that time: a woman of international rank and culture. The lands of Matilda are an area in Italy with a strong identity distinguishing itself within the regional panorama for its environmental, landscape, and historical-cultural characteristics. Layers of deep history are attested by many archaeological sites, the standing remains of castles, and by numerous villas and rural dwellings.
