BOLOGNA - ITALY, 19 - 21 SEPTEMBER 2018

Venue

BOLOGNA

Bologna, a city strategically located to reach the major Italian tourist destinations, includes artistic and picturesque views of Medieval and Renaissance Italian art together with traditional food products “Made in Italy”. The medieval town centre is one of the best-preserved in Europe with many towers scattered among the porticoes and historical homes, like Palazzo dell’Archiginnasio, and the historic University, the oldest one in Europe.

Piazza Maggiore is the ancient heart of Bologna. Its medieval buildings, witnesses of a vibrant public life and intense economic activity, still retain their charm. A network of streets with picturesque porticoes branch off from Piazza Maggiore. The porticos of Bologna stretch out from the city center over 40 kilometers. Walking under the porticos, protected from the sun and the rain, it is possible to easily reach many important museums, galleries and religious buildings, which hold unexpected works of art. The University of Bologna is the oldest in Europe. The evidence of its prestigious history is spread out in many city places not to be missed.
