Ten words to evoke the most important moments, century by century, of the social, cultural, political and economical life in Bologna, since 1116 to today, in order to reading the past in the light of the aspirations and problems of the present.
From autonomy in the twelfth century to democracy for the twentieth century, through participation, manufacture, knowledge, innovation, territory, reason, independence and ending with the word accessibility, chosen to indicate the major challenges by which the contemporary world is confronted.
