Copparo is a town and comune of Emilia Romagna, Italy, in the Province of Ferrara, located 50km northeast of the regional capital of Bologna and 17km east of the provincial capital of Ferrara, Copparo sits in the fertile Po River Delta—10km south of the river and 35km from the Adriatic coast.The territory of the municipality lies between 0and above sea level.DemographicsCopparo has a population of about 17,000 inhabitants and a surface of 157km2; thus the population density is 111.2 inhabitants per square kilometer.HistoryThe origins of Copparo date back to the early Middle Ages and are confirmed both by a formation prior to the year 1000 and by its belonging to the Church of Ferrara and Ravenna (955) under the name "Massa in Copario". From many historical documents it appears that Copparo was a rather large agricultural center within the territory of Ferrara. The 1431 census mentions it as the largest area sown with barley and wheat. Copparo was likewise mentioned in the Statuta Ferrariae dated 1287 under the name of "Coparius" (recalling the responsibility the citizens of Copparo had in digging the"de preta" channel). After the year 1251, the area fell under the title of the Dukes of Ferrara, the Estensi family. They used the area primarily for recreational purposes, developing one of their principle game preserves and hunting lodges, a turreted castle. It was destroyed during the war against Venice and rebuilt in 1540. It then became one of the most famous Estense Delights. Of the original structure and its five towers only a solitary one remains today, on the site of the current city hall.
