Piacenza  listen  (Placentia in Latin, Piasëinsa in the local dialect of Emiliano-Romagnolo) is a city and comune in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. It is the capital of the province of Piacenza. Modern forms of the name descend from Latin Placentia. The etymology is long-standing, tracing an origin from the Latin verb, placēre, “to please.” It is thus a “pleasant abode” or as James Boswell reported some of the etymologists of his time to have translated, “comely.” This was a name “of good omen.”

Piacenza was a transferplace for salt from the Ligurian Coast.

Genoa Caravans carried solt from Genoa to Piacenza. From here, barges trasnported the salt via the Po to Parma. The salt was especially used in Parma by cheese makers. The prosciutto makers used salt from Salsomaggiore.
