Budrio is a town and comune in the province of Bologna, in Emilia-Romagna, Italy; it is 15 kilometres (9 mi) east of Bologna.
Budrio is the birthplace of Giuseppe Barilli, better known under his pseudonym of Quirico Filopanti, a famous Italian mathematician and politician.
Budrio's area was a Roman colony, whose territory was divided between veteran legionaries. The current town was however founded in the 10th-11th centuries AD. The church of San Lorenzo was already active in 1146. In the 14th century Cardinal Gil de Albornoz rebuilt it as a castle, of which the two large towers (1376) can still be seen, while of the walls only a small section remains.
The most notable attraction are the Bentivoglio castle (16th century) and the Villa Ranuzzi Cospi at Bagnarola. The town also houses the Pinacoteca (painting gallery) Domenico Inzaghi and the churches of San Domenico del Rosario and Santi Gervasio e Protasio.Giuseppe Donati, inventor of the ocarina
