The Communal palaces feature a fresco depicting Clement VII and Charles V passing through the city in the fourteenth century.
Imola is a great place to visit to see Formula One San Marino Grand Prix. Though the race is named after the town of San Marino, it is too small to hold a large race, so it is located in Imola.

If you love Ferraris, the Ferrari factory in Maranello is not far away.
The city has also won some awards, including Medaglia d'Oro al Valor Militare (Gold Purple Heart) in 1984 because of the city's participation in the Italian resistance movement. In 1971, the city won the Gold Merit Badge of the Art and Culture School.
