Bentivoglio (Northern Bolognese: Bäntvói or Bentvói) is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Bologna in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, located about 15 kilometres (9 mi) northeast of Bologna.

History[edit]

First settlements in Bentivoglio's territory date back to the Villanovan civilization, as testified by some cremation tombs dating from the 10th century BC and by a 6th century BC stele. The Romans carried first measures for land reclamation.

In the Middle Ages the central area of the territory was called "Poledrano Bridge"; the name stemmed from the passage of foals on the Navile canal bridge.
