“Magiae Naturalis” is the theme of Smell Festival 2016, the event that offers to the public the opportunity to explore the universe of smells, discover fine perfumery products and develop their sensory skills. In Bologna from May 18th to 22nd.

This 7th edition is inspired by Giovanni Battista Della Porta's book - famous Neapolitan humanist, alchemist and scientist who gave an outstanding contribution to the spreading of distillation and perfumery techniques during the late Renaissance.

Together with its guests and public, Smell Festival 2016 will make up an imaginary scented painting infused by the love of nature, scientific curiosity and poetry. The programme will propose  workshops, meetings, perfume showcase, and many other events. LOOK AT THE FULL PROGRAMME

Smell Festival is promoted by Orablu, a non-profit association in collaboration with Regione Emilia Romagna, Istituzione Bologna Musei and many other partners and private sponsors.
