Bologna City: Archi-Gymnasium Medieval Library Cities and Special Albums from Italy - Kalpana Image Archives - Italy

Archiginnasio is the 15th century building close to to the central square (Piazza Maggiore) that hosted Bologna university. In those years, getting educated in Bologna was considered important for nobility and thus boys and men from noble families of different parts of Europe came to study here. The coat of arms of those noble families can be seen in different parts of this building. Today, the first floor of this building hosts the medieval books and manuscripts library. It also has the anatomy room where medieval physicians could dissect and understand human bodies. Parts of this building including the anatomy room were destroyed in allied bombing during second world war and were rebuild in nineteen fifties. The new parts of the building lack the frescoes and coat of arms of the noble families that cover the rest of the building.

There are many more images of Bologna, its museums, and its important places from different years that you can check. You may also like to check lot more other images on art and culture events from Bologna and other Italian cities. Finally, you can check more images from different parts of the world from General Image Index.
