La Dotta, la Grassa and la Rossa (the Learned, the Fat and the Red) are the famous Bologna’s sobriquets. Bologna is an important cultural and artistic centre with an unbelivable mixture of monuments and architectural examples: medieval towers, antique buildings, churches, the complete layout of its historical downtown, with the beauty of the portici (colonnades or arcades) which make it possible to walk completely protected from the elements.
