Municipality of Reggio Emilia
Galleria Santa Maria 1
IT – 42100 Reggio Emilia

Placed in the very heart of Emilia-Romagna Region, Reggio Emilia is a municipality with more than 170,000 people living on 231,56 square metres. Since 1990, Reggio experienced a demographic increase among the highest in Europe, due to a massive migration phenomenon. As of 31/12/2012, more than 18% (31,797) of its citizens are foreigners or of foreign origins, proceeding from East Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America.The city has dramatically changed over the last fifteen years, both demographically and economically. The arrival of several migrants searching for a job, initially incorporated into the local economy, has strongly impacted on social structures and the quality of relationships, as well as on social cohesion. The effect is particularly patent inside apartment houses situated in those urban areas where the economic crisis and different life-styles bring about non-virtuous behaviours in energy consumption.Municipality of Reggio Emilia (Reggio Emilia)
