Brescello is a comune in the Province of Reggio Emilia in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 80km northwest of Bologna and about 25km northwest of Reggio Emilia. It has 5,504 inhabitants.GeographySituated in the northwestern side of the province, close to the borders with the provinces of Parma and Mantua (Mantua is in Lombardy), Brescello lies on the southern shore of the river Po, near the confluence with the Enza. The municipality borders Boretto, Gattatico, Mezzani (PR), Poviglio, Sorbolo (PR) and Viadana (MN).The townLocated near the Po river, remains of this ancient town's Roman roots – it was called Brixellum during the Roman era – can still be seen in the Antiquarium, via Cavallotti 12 (a former Benedictine monastery), where ancient Roman relics and sculptures are on display. A bishop Cyprianus of Brescello (Brixillum in Latin) was present at a synod held in Milan in 451, but the bishopric came to an end when in the early 7th century the Byzantines destroyed the town to prevent it falling into the hands of the Lombard king Agilulf. No longer a residential bishopric, Brixillum is now listed by the Catholic Church as a titular see.
