Overlooking the Navile Canal in Bentivoglio, there is Palazzo Rosso, today the local library.

Built by Carlo Alberto Pizzardi in 1897, it has splendid decorations by Achille Casanova, showing scenes typical of the local swampy areas.

A decorative masterpiece, the Zodiac Room is one of the greatest examples of Ars Æmilia .

The Palazzo Rosso is now home to the municipal library, the Town Council Room and cultural activities.

The "Zodiac Room", which has a capacity of 60 people, is used as an ideal location for meetings, exhibitions and weddings.
