Bologna Guide Italy


"I had the great luxury of tossing a dart at a map of the world to find a place to hide Mr. Backman. Almost anywhere would work. But I have to confess that I was not blindfolded when I threw the dart." John Grisham about the setting for The Broker.

Bologna is an age-old city, full of character, which is described well by its traditional epithets: Bologna la dotta, la grassa, la rossa (Bologna the fat, learned and red city). It is one of the cultural capitals of Europe, with its prestigious university founded in 1088, which today offers 250 different majors to more than 100,000 students. Its character is expressed in the red of its buildings and the long, long porticoes which are everywhere (almost 40 km). Red is also the color of its local government which from the end of WWII until the present have contributed to making the city famous for its openness and tolerance. Lastly, Bologna is fat, a woman who loves life's pleasures, where cooking is an art and fun a way of life.
