SOCIAL DINNER – November 15th

PALAZZO GNUDI – via Riva di Reno, 77 – 40121 Bologna

Built literally across the channel that brings Reno waters to the city, the building has its origins in the first half of 1500. In 1747 it was sold to Raffaele Gnudi, business man of modest origins that became rich through his knowledge and his work at the Apostolic Camera. In 1758 Raffaele died and Antonio, the most dynamic among the three sons of Raffaele, began climbing the social ladder. During his climb he rebuilt the palace: Antonio spared no money on decorations and hired the best painters of the time.
The facade made by Francis Tadolini presents typical characteristics including bicromia, which emphasizes the decorative elements, and the rustic smooth. The tall neoclassical portal is surmounted by a balcony and the door, adornes the top of the sculpture depicting allegories of the Abbondanza (right) and Sapienza (left), attributed to Petronius Tadolini, brother and assistant to Francis.
The eighteenth-century “Gallery of mirrors”, frescoes, statues and charming stucco decorations make it one of the most interesting and evocative historical residences of the city centre.

Piazza Maggiore
The heart of Bologna since 2500 years ago. A real heart, in fact when people from Bologna go “in the city centre” they say they are going “in Piazza”.

Palazzo D’Accursio
Composed by buildings that cover three hundred years of rich Bolognese history, from 1200 to 1500, it’s the prestigious headquarter of the city’s Government and with the grandeur of its rooms it reveals fascinating art works.

Palazzo del Podestà
An austere building from the thirteenth-century masked as an elegant residence of the Renaissance. It’s adorned by thousand of tiles that tell its ancient history.

Sala Borsa
After the ancient private garden of the Cardinal was demolished this area, in 1800, got occupied by the splendid Liberty style Sala Borsa that we can admire today. The transparent crystal pavement let people admire some ruins of the great roman city of Bononia.

Neptuno’s Fountain
Symbol of the sixteenth-century’s elegance, its clear waters were never intended as drinking water for thirsty people from Bologna but as a celebration to the Pope’s power.

Palazzo Re Enzo
The gloomy medieval prison of the city. Two pikes from the sixteenth century reveal the cruelty of a time when forgiveness didn’t exist.

Basilica di San Petronio
The works for this majestic Collegiate started in 1390. On the incomplete façade you feel the tenderness of the Madonnina by Jacopo della Quercia, while on the inside you can admire pictorial, sculptural and glass masterpieces from medieval and of the renaissance Italian art.

The Archiginnasio and the Anatomical Theatre
Elegant sixteenth-century palace, was built to be the first and “only” headquarter of the ancient Studium Bolognese, the oldest University in Europe. On the first floor we find the awesome Anatomy Theatre where corpses were dissected during medicine and anatomy lessons.

The medieval market and the merchant’s lodge
Through the narrow and lively alleys of the city-market we will arrive to the palace that had been the headquarter of the Foro dei Mercanti. This building was built in the fourteenth century and still keeps its Gothic style charm.

Santo Stefano Church
Named the Bolognese Saint Gerusalem after its symbolic links to the “Passion of the Christ” sites.
There still stand: a Benedictine monastery the origins of which go back to the dawn of Christianity, a Byzantine church almost 1600 years old, a Romanesque church and a crypt as well as two cloisters of incomparable beauty. An unforgettable historic-artistic experience.

The two towers
The itinerary ends at the base of the Two towers that, from the Middle Ages, overlook the city.
