University information desk

In Piazza Maggiore at Bologna Welcome.

In Piazza Maggiore opposite the basilica of San Petronio, Bologna Welcome now contains a university information desk for the city: a point where one can find out about the University of Bologna, past and present, museums and venues.

Digital frames illustrate key characters, historical and present-day scenes from university life. Visitors may use the two Internet workstations to surf the UNIBO websites, consult the University Magazine or browse through the brochures presenting Bologna University in Italian and English.

The section devoted to documents via images has a multi-media monitor showing this oldest of western universities at ceremonial moments, including interviews with famous people.

Visitors will also find printed illustrative material exploring various themes.

The photographs were provided by the Historical Archive, the University Museum System and the Bologna University Image Bank.
