Secrets of underground tunnels of Bologna
Tunnels were built or converted for different needs over time: water reservoir, passages, air raid shelters
Under Bologna lies an intricate complex of tunnels winding below the city. Tunnels were built or converted for different needs over time: water reservoir, passages, air raid shelters, etc.
Waterways of Bologna had a long story: used since Roman times, their importance increased with Middle Ages to fulfil the needs of the growing economy of Bologna.
During Renaissance, waterways were even upgraded with a real port connecting Bologna to Adriatico Sea.
