Literary Bologna

Bologna in the words and lives of writers. Accompanied by the words of Dante, Leopardi, Carducci, D’Annunzio and Pasolini we will discover how these literary geniuses sang our Bologna. The main points of interest will be the following. 

Piazza Maggiore

Giosuè Carducci in the first book of the Odi Barbare declaims the medieval beauty of the “San Petronio square”.

Asinelli tower

The “Asinella” tower sung not only by Giosuè Carducci but by Dante Alighieri is an imperishable symbol of medieval Bologna. 

Lamentarion of the Dead Christ

Infuriate dal dolore, dementate dal dolore erano le Marie…Puoi tu imaginare che cosa sia l’urlo pietrificato?”  Gabriele D’Annunzio da ” Le faville del maglio”. 

Santo Stefano Basilica

In the labyrinth of churches, we find some decorative elements that perhaps inspired Dante’s inferno.
