Par Tot Parade 2005 (2)Bologna Image Archives Kalpana Image Archives - Italy

Bologna has a busy calendar of cultural events. It is also the European city of music. Among all these cultural events, my personal favourite is the annual Par Tot parade (in the Bologna dialect, "Par Tot" means "for everyone"). Like the different Samba schools in the carnival of Rio de Janeiro, the different teams of Par Tot start preparing their team dances and costumes around April.

Bologna university gets lot of students from other parts of Italy and from other countries. These students are the most active participants of Par Tot but the participation is open to anyone who desires, as long as you accept to be part of one of the free preparation workshops, that start around April. Since 2009, Par Tot parade is held in June, every two years. Last two parades were in 2009 and 2011, so next ones should be in 2013, 2015 and so on.
