Fiorenzuola d'Arda ([fjorenˈtswɔːla ˈdarda]) is a city and comune in Italy in the province of Piacenza, part of the Emilia-Romagna region. Its name derives from Florentia ("prosperous" in Latin). The "d'Arda" portion refers to the River Arda which flows from the Apennines into the valley where Fiorenzuola is situated. Fiorenzuola's origins are old, dating from the first prehistorica human settlements in Italy.
