Cultural Experiencial Area
Square
轻轻的一个蚊Piazza Maggiore is located in the center of Bologna. It was built in 1200. To the north of the square are two medieval palaces built in the early thirteenth century, and to the south is the Basilica of San Pietro, which was built in 1390. , Has not yet been completed. In the center of the square is an open-air cinema, where movies are shown every night (with commercials). Bologna is my favorite Italian city, with simple and elegant architecture, clean and tidy. Here is the first university in Europe-the University of Bologna. Bologna is a wealthy city, and famous car brands such as Ferrari and Maserati were born here.

Churches and Cathedrals
享受生活的每一天Palma Cathedral is really beautiful. The unique petal window can project the shape of petals only one day a year. Although it is not very symmetrical, it is as beautiful as the irregular color projection.

Fountain
salvalasilvia “Al Żigànt”, the giant is the nickname in the bolognese dialect of Neptune’s Fountain, located in Piazza del Nettuno, Bologna.The statue was designed by Giambologna but the fountain, the statue and the hydraulic system were build by the great Palermitan architect Tommaso Laureti.In the centre of the tank of the fountain, there is a base where there are four Nereids holding their breasts, from which jets of water emerge. The base is decorated with pontifical emblems, ornaments that - connected to four cherubs - hold dolphins (which are allegorical representation of major rivers from the then-known corners of the world: the Ganges, the Nile, the Amazon River, and the Danube. In the centre of this base raises the majestic figure of the Neptune sculpted by Giambologna's; the statue is a typical expressions of the manneristic theatricality.The Neptune stretches his left hand in a lordly gesture, appearing to be aiming to placate the waves; this posture is interpreted as symbolic exaltation of the new power of the Pope Pius IV: just as Neptune was the master of the seas, the Pope was the master of Bologna and of the world.A local anecdote also tells of a particular expedient put in place by Giambologna, who intended to find a way to make Neptune with the larger genitalia, without being discovered and admonished by the Church originally made him censor the statue. The sculptor designed the statue in such a way that from a particular angle the thumb of the outstretched hand of Neptune seems to appear directly from the lower abdomen, suggesting an erect genital.As proof of it, in the pavement of the square there is a black stone, also called "of shame" placed in a very specific point (at the foot of the entrance staircase of the Salaborsa library). The fountain is an icon, reflected in symbols, commercials and logos.The trident inspired the Maserati’s logo.
