Sassuolo is an industrial centre of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The town stands on the right bank of the river Secchia some 17km southwest of Modena.HistoryThe first historical mention of the town dates to 980. In 1078 the consuls of Sassuolo swore loyalty to the commune of Modena. In 1373 the city passed to the Este family at the request of the citizens themselves, who obtained the right to extract water from the river Secchia.The town was a possession of the Duchy of Modena until the 19th century.TitleAs a titular Duke of Modena, the current holder of the title of "Lord of Sassuolo" would theoretically be Prince Lorenz of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este. The 1947 Constitution of Italy explicitly does not recognize any titles of nobility, however.Main sights Among the main sights in the town is the Ducal palace of Sassuolo, designed by architect Bartolomeo Avanzini in 1634. In 1638–56 part of the interiors was frescoed by the French Baroque painter Jean Boulanger. Angelo Michele Colonna, Agostino Mitelli, Baldassare Bianchi and Giovanni Giacomo Monti were invited by Boulanger to work also on the palace decoration. Luca Colombi, Giovanni Lazzoni, Lattanzio Maschio, Guercino, Salvator Rosa, Ludovico Lana also contributed.
