Bologna City: Two Towers & Surroundings Cities and Special Albums from Italy - Kalpana Image Archives - Italy

Medieval Bologna was a city of towers. The second world war and the massive reconstruction after the war destroyed many of these towers or have hidden them behind other buildings. Still the centre of Bologna has two important towers - the taller one is Asinelli tower and the shorter (and more titlted one) is Garisenda tower. You can climb on the top of Asinelli tower for a bird's view of the city and discover many other medieval towers. The towers are meeting point for four important city streets - strada Maggiore (the big road), San Vitale road, Castiglione road and Zamboni road. A few meters away on Castiglione road is Piazza della Mercanzia, the historical square of merchants that leads to Santo Stefano church, where apparently Bologna was started as an Etruscan town. Via Farini and San Giovnani in monte are other old areas near by. You will find images of all these places on this page.

Bologna is commonly referred to as the city of "due torri" (Two towers).

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.
