"Museum as a space of discovery of culture and innovation
Museum as a space for rebirth"
This Sala Bianca is intended to retrace the history and the evolution of the ancient city of Bologna, whose history dates back to the IX century B.C. In particular, it focuses on five main elements that all along these centuries have gone through interesting changes: the city’s towers, the porticoes, the University, S. Petronio church and the city map.
Starting from its topography and proceeding through some structural shifts, such as the development of porticoes and the destruction of many towers, it will be possible to trace a path of the evolution of the expansion of this city center.
The main goal is to guide the visitors to relate to the past and to get an idea of people’s mentality in that time in contrast with our every-day life.
