It was the seat of Veronica Gambara (1485–1550) a noted politician poet who ruled the principality after the death of her husband Giberto X, Count of Correggio, from 1518 to 1550.
It is also the birthplace of composer Bonifazio Asioli, the world famous flautist Andrea Griminelli, the pedagogue Loris Malaguzzi, the Venetian School composer Claudio Merulo, the rock singer Luciano Ligabue, the famously disqualified 1908 Summer Olympics marathon runner Dorando Pietri, and the novelist Pier Vittorio Tondelli.
In 1659, the Principality was annexed to the Duchy of Modena.
As a titular Duke of Modena, the current holder of the title of "Prince of Correggio" would be Prince Lorenz of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este.
