Bologna, Italy – Overview
The Land of the towering medieval towers and exceptional cuisines, Bologna is counted among some of the best 'well-kept secrets' in Italy which is quite understandable, Bologna is a gem when it comes down to rich history and culture. Located in the region of Emilia-Romagna which dominates Italy's Northern area, Bologna, dating back to the 5th century, was an urban center from the very beginning and today also it remains one of the country's biggest metropolitan areas. And, interestingly, because of its unmatched agricultural prosperity, it is still called 'Bologna the Fat' – the title which it has been carrying from the times of the 'Middle Ages'.
Places of Interest in Bologna, Italy
Situated on the Piazza Santo Stefano, this magnificent basilica consists of a compound which houses four to seven religious buildings and since all of them are churches, locally it is also known as 'Sette Chiese' which translates to 'Seven Churches'. As per history records, there used to be a temple of Egyptian Goddess Isis on the very site where Santo Stefano stands; the construction of this place began in the 5th century by a bishop Saint Petronius. The oldest structures in the Basilica are Santi Vitale e Agricola, and the courtyard Cortile di Pilato, both date back to the 5th century; most of the other structures that you see today were erected in 10th to 12th Century. The most noted structure is San Sepolcro church and its beehive-shaped building which is home to the Nativity scene which is the most popular among children of Bologna.
Basilica Di San Petronio
The most interesting fact about this 132m-long-and-66m-wide Gothic Cathedral – which dominates Piazza Maggiore – is that its construction began in 1390 but even after a span of more than 600 years it still is a far cry from completion! The construction of the cathedral was handed to Antonio di Vincenzo and he planned a much bigger structure than we see today, but the idea was dropped to accommodate the university seat which was established adjacent to it in 1561. As per history Curia of Sancti Ambrosii – along with other ancient fortresses and Churches – was flattened to make room for the Cathedral. The insides of the church consist of 'A Madonna with saints', a Pietà, a choir, and the fabbrica; though its doorways is home to many frescos and sculptures like nudes of Adam etc, but the fresco which depicts 'Mohammad as being tortured in hell' has remained one of the highlights - because of this the church was even attacked twice by the terrorists.
