Bologna was named "UNESCO creative city of Music" in 2006 - and perhaps this promenade will show you why it was. Bologna has a wealth of concerts and opera, a wide variety of jazz and contemporary music, and high level clubs where tomorrow's music is being played today. And then in the background you can just hear the voices of Dalla, Carboni, Cremonini.
As for history - why not try out the thrill of feeling like Farinelli, Rossini, or Mozart as a young student? They all stayed here in the 1600s to 1800s.
Music has always had a central role in Bologna. Institutions like the G.B. Martini Conservatory, the International Museum and Library of Music and the 18th-century Teatro Comunale are proof of the city's extraordinary musical history.
What's more, ours is a tradition of musical instrument construction: string instruments and ocarine, crafted in Budrio but known in the whole world thanks to the museum named after them.
