Bologna is a wonderful and unique city where technology and tradition are alongside. There are many reasons to visit it, important events take places here and its old town is full of curiosities and historical memories.The city is also nicknamed “Grassa, Dotta, la Rossa”.The first nickname, that of Grassa(fat), is clearly derived from its typical food, rich in flavour and definitely caloric.However, bolognese people, though dedicated to good food, love to feed the spirit with knowledge.In fact, the University of Bologna is the oldest in the West and among the most important in Italy and Europe, for this reason it is called the Dotta (erudite). Finally, la Rossa (red), not because its political tendencies as someone use to say, but by the color of bricks that characterize the buildings of the Old Town.
