Villas, historical residences and theatres

Bologna is more than a façade... With its rich patrimony of palaces, historical residences and villas, as well as the manifold still existing towers, the city contains many fascinating hidden corners such as courtyards, stairs and beautiful detailed rooms. Some of these historical buildings are usually open to the public, while others are private houses or offices and can be visited on special events only.
In addition to palaces and villas, Bologna has many theatres which contributed to the cultural and artistic history of the city.

In 1336 it became the residence of the Elders, the highest judiciary of the City Government and is the seat of city government.

Teatro Alessandro Guardassoni

This small theatre is located in the piano nobile of Palazzo Montalto, thus called after the birth-place of its founder, Pope Sistus V, who at the end of the 16th century turned it as a university boarding school for young students from the Marches region. This function continued until the French revolution, to start anew in 1873 by today's Collegio San Luigi, previously known as Collegio dei Nobili under the Barnabite Brothers. In the private residence the area now occupied by the theatre is thought to have been in use as an elegant reception hall for balls and parties, as it is provided with a gallery for the orchestra.

Le due Torri: Garisenda e degli Asinelli

The two towers Garisenda and Asinelli are the traditional symbol of Bologna, strategically standing where the old Aemilian way entered the town. In the late 12th century, at least one hundred towers dotted the town's skyline, but today only twenty have survived the ravages of fire, warfare and lightning.
