Bagnara di Romagna is an Italian commune with 2,416 inhabitants (as of December 31, 2019) in the Emilia-Romagna region , province of Ravenna . It is located on the Santerno River .


The village was originally called just Bagnara after the swamps surrounding it and was added in 1863 to distinguish it from Bagnara Calabra . First mentioned in 855, the original settlement was one kilometer southeast of the current location. The first Count of Bagnara became Bennone, Bishop of Imola in 1129 . On May 8, 1222, the original settlement was destroyed in a battle between Bologna and Faenza on the one hand and Imola, to which Bagnara belonged. The survivors built the new settlement in a place where there was already a prayer house. After many changes of ownership and disputes between the Papal States and France, the city remained "indirectly" with the Holy See from July 30, 1562. After the Napoleonic interlude, Bagnara came back to the Papal States until the Italian unification .
