Bologna is a medium-size city, with about 600.000 inhabitants, with a 
history dating back the Etruscan age, with an outstanding heritage 
from the roman and middle age periods.
Bologna came to worldwide attention with the founding of the 
University in 1088, when two thousands students from all over Europe 
poured into the medieval "comune". It is reputed as the oldest 
University in the Western Society with more than 9 centuries of 
history and it is one of the major universities in Europe.
It is one of best preserved and most beautiful cities in Italy, with 
the center made of a labyrinth of ancient streets, exquisite squares, 
churches, monuments, and sweeping porticoes. 40 km of ochre-coloured 
arcades still shadow the streets-covered walkways that give Bologna 
its unique style.
It is well known for several reasons, among which the cultural 
aspects, the quality of life, the cuisine and wines.
