Bologna, with the stone forest of its porticoes, the bright red roofs, the most ancient university in the world, is a city that stili can't decide whether to be a metropolis or to retain a more human atmosphere. "Erudite city", "Fat city", "Hedonistic city": over the centuries Bologna has been given many nicknames in order to try and describe its cultura) richness, its love for good food and its slight penchant for the pleasure of the senses. Comfortably tucked between the hills and the plain, Bologna reached the apex in the 13th century, and traces of this period rèmain everywhere, in the churches, in the palaces and most importantly in the urban fabric within the first circle of medieval walls. While in other cities like Florence and Rome the architectural masterpieces are more important than the city as a whole, in Bologna's case it's exactly the opposite: the uniformity of its roads and of the 40 kms of porticoes that branch off in a star pattern from the Two Towers doesn't allow any building to stand out alone: all are inextricable parts of a historic centre considered by the Unesco to be one of the largest in the world. Bologna is a "mother" city that used to generously welcome artists and erudite men in the past. Its centrai location on the Italian peninsula has made it one of the country's most important railway junctions, and an internationally renowned trade fair location. To discover Bologna and its liveliness is to get to know it in its different expressions: tradition and innovation, culture and fun.
