Bologna is red and chubby. Bologna is a big village with an urban underground soul. Bologna is where the oldest University in the Western Hemisphere was founded. In Bologna there are so many bicycles that you think you're in Northern Europe. In Bologna there are many dogs and their corresponding owners. Sometimes, in Bologna you feel like you're in the 1970s. In Bologna you stay either thirty minutes or a whole life. Bologna has been called "the Pompei of the Middle Ages" by Sidney Morgan, but we haven't been burnt alive by lava. Bologna is charming, even when it's dirty. Bologna is no more what it used to be. Bologna is... what you will find out yourself.
