"Truly a Unique City"
An important cultural and artistic center, the importance of Bologna can be attributed to its architecture (medieval towers, antique buildings, churches, the layout of the city) and art. Ragu was first created here, and it is also the birthplace of mortadella, toretelli and lasagne. Bologna is also home to the oldest university in continuous operation, the University of Bologna. With a combination of art, food and culture that can be found nowhere else, Bologna is truly a unique city.
