Genus Bononiae: discovering Bologna’s Culture

When it comes to a trip  to visit Italy,  few times you would hear a turist choosing Bologna as important historic-artistic city, despite the long tradition of cultural, musical, and University issues. Recently opened the “Genus Bononiae. Museums in the city”, a cultural, artistic and articulate in Museum buildings in the historical centre of Bologna, restored and recovered to public use. A proposal for the holiday weekend of 1° may 2012.


Library of art and history of San Giorgio in Poggiale with a heritage books from 1500 to today;

San Colombano with the collection of ancient musical instruments of the master Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini;

Church of Santa Cristina , venue of concerts;

Santa Maria della Vita where is placed the Lamentation over the dead Christ by Niccolò dell’arca;

Palazzo Pepoli innovative museum dedicated to the history of the city;

Palazzo Fava painted by Carracci, and fully intended to Center events and exhibitions;

San Michele in Bosco large belvedere overlooking Bologna, rich in works of art;

Casa Saraceni , home of the Fondazione Carisbo.

An urban trail that tells the story, life, art and dreams; uses the streets of Bologna as corridors, palaces and churches like salt, in the existing institutional structure, as well as to provide a full connection with other museums, galleries, cultural, economic and social issues that enliven the local community.
