Things To Do in Bologna

Historical Site
Ancient Pagoda
Calvin在路上There are many high and low towers in the city of Bologna. Among them, the commanding heights of the city are the "double towers"-the two families used the method of building towers to fight for face. As a result, one of them collapsed after only being built half, and the other stood for a thousand years inverted. The tallest one is nearly 100 meters high, and it can overlook the beautiful scenery of the city and even the surrounding area.

Square
Cultural Experiencial Area
轻轻的一个蚊Piazza Maggiore is located in the center of Bologna. It was built in 1200. To the north of the square are two medieval palaces built in the early thirteenth century, and to the south is the Basilica of San Pietro, which was built in 1390. , Has not yet been completed. In the center of the square is an open-air cinema, where movies are shown every night (with commercials). Bologna is my favorite Italian city, with simple and elegant architecture, clean and tidy. Here is the first university in Europe-the University of Bologna. Bologna is a wealthy city, and famous car brands such as Ferrari and Maserati were born here.

Fountain
salvalasilvia “Al Żigànt”, the giant is the nickname in the bolognese dialect of Neptune’s Fountain, located in Piazza del Nettuno, Bologna.The statue was designed by Giambologna but the fountain, the statue and the hydraulic system were build by the great Palermitan architect Tommaso Laureti.In the centre of the tank of the fountain, there is a base where there are four Nereids holding their breasts, from which jets of water emerge. The base is decorated with pontifical emblems, ornaments that - connected to four cherubs - hold dolphins (which are allegorical representation of major rivers from the then-known corners of the world: the Ganges, the Nile, the Amazon River, and the Danube. In the centre of this base raises the majestic figure of the Neptune sculpted by Giambologna's; the statue is a typical expressions of the manneristic theatricality.The Neptune stretches his left hand in a lordly gesture, appearing to be aiming to placate the waves; this posture is interpreted as symbolic exaltation of the new power of the Pope Pius IV: just as Neptune was the master of the seas, the Pope was the master of Bologna and of the world.A local anecdote also tells of a particular expedient put in place by Giambologna, who intended to find a way to make Neptune with the larger genitalia, without being discovered and admonished by the Church originally made him censor the statue. The sculptor designed the statue in such a way that from a particular angle the thumb of the outstretched hand of Neptune seems to appear directly from the lower abdomen, suggesting an erect genital.As proof of it, in the pavement of the square there is a black stone, also called "of shame" placed in a very specific point (at the foot of the entrance staircase of the Salaborsa library). The fountain is an icon, reflected in symbols, commercials and logos.The trident inspired the Maserati’s logo.

Museum
_We***07Every car in this museum can’t be bought, so I can only come and visit to satisfy my vanity. The luxury cars inside are all classic models, and the colors are classic, giving people a sense of technology and classic Aftertaste.

Church
_We***95According to legend, half of the halls will not be built. I feel that it will be very good if it is completed. I feel that the shape of the front is rough, like a large factory building. The murals here are quite exquisite, and the style of the building is very good.
