Imola

town and episcopal see, Emilia-Romagna regione, northern Italy. Imola lies along the Santerno River, southeast of Bologna. Its Forum Cornelii was a station on the Roman road Via Aemilia. The town was devastated in the 6th century by the Byzantine emperor Justinian I but was rebuilt and fortified by the Lombards. An independent commune from 1084, it was ruled by a succession of lords from the 13th century until it was taken by Cesare Borgia in 1499 and incorporated with the Papal States.
