Additional Location Information

There's plenty written about Bologna as the Italy's food capital and railway hub, the seat one of the world's oldest university and first medical school, its unique urban planning constraints which resulted in over 30 km. of covered archways throughout the city and up to the hills. Tourists have yet to discover its before and after.. the early iron age and Villanovan civilization, the Etruscan and even Celtic ruins just 20 minutes away by car, the early 19th century pre- industrial and modern era where this home comes into play.
The house was built in the aftermath of WWII when Bologna, (after heavy Allied bombing along the 'Gothic Line' ) like the much of Italy began its relentless march to post-war affluence in a paradoxical neighborhood- the 'Bolognina' that grew due to the immigration of manual laborers from the countryside when the railway supplanted canals for trade and commerce. Today this area thrives thanks to small, entrepreneurial companies, several new Bologna Univ. departments and the new City Hall infrastructure which, like the rail station, is just about 15 blocks away. The house is close to the most modern shopping centers, plenty of Italian supermarkets and the very traditional outdoor food markets. It is near the newly, lightly redeveloped old ironworks and the 'Blond's Bridge' that host popular and often free entertainment in the summer. There is the old Navile canal nearby, the 'Farming Culture' museum, the hidden Chiusa di Corticella loch which opened in the 12th century and closed in 1948. The house doesn't pretend to be more than what it really is: well kept, welcoming, clean, comfortable, and practical. Another paradox: it's a 10 minute, old fashioned bike ride on a new bike path crossing 20 blocks to the Eurostar,one of the fastest, most modern trains in Europe. You'll forget you're in the city in the quiet privacy of the house, pool, and lovely garden but it's walking distance to good local restaurants, easy to reach an animated cocktail bar or moving cultural event downtown if you want excitement, or get to a quiet shore near the Reno river and its canals for an unusual change of scenery.
