There are cities which, thanks to their strong historic and cultural identity, have earned nicknames which have stood the test of time. Bologna is a prime example of this, as it is historically known as La Dotta (the Erudite), La Rossa (the Red) and La Grassa (the Fat One).
You'll easily find out why it has been given these three epithets when visiting the city: Bologna is home to the first University in the world to fully possess all modern academic criteria; its buildings, porticos and walls feature warm red bricks whose speckles are particularly beautiful in the light at sunset; and its culinary delights are considered to be some of the very best on the rich Italian food landscape.
