Abstract

The capital of the Emilia-Romagna region is the city of Bologna, a place that has been inhabited since the 10th century BC. The city has the honour of having the oldest university in the world, established in 1088; some of the more famous faculty members have included Dante (d. 1321), Albrecht Dürer (d. 1528), and Copernicus (d. 1543). The city has several nicknames – La Dotta (‘the learned’) because of the university; La Grassa (‘the fat one’) for its cuisine; and La Rossa (‘the red’) not only because of the many red roofs of the buildings in the city but also because Bologna became a Communist stronghold after WWII. In the middle of this 17th century map the Two Towers of Bologna, built in the 12th century, are visible and they still stand in the city today, albeit on a lean.
