Ha! Fucking Romagna. They deserve that.
They do have/had some nice beaches.
The beaches are overcrowded, the sea is awful, and everything is way overpriced. But I'll admit this: you go out at night, and you'll have a blast.

Joking aside though, if this projection is correct, even a modest increase in the sea level (1m is sufficient) could be catastrophic there. I didn't know that.
The Po Valley is basically a huge alluvial plain, and most of it is virtually at elevation zero. It's one of the most fertile place in the world, but the risk of flood is significant.
