The main part of exhibition include the celtic and italic findings (Aetruscan, Ligures, Umbrian, 4th and 3rd sec. B.C.) coming from Monte Bibele settlement and the necropolis of Monterenzio. A particular value has the armament: Celtic iron swords and thrown weapons (spears, javelins), as well as a large number of bronze and iron helmets.

Because these works require close-up attention to all the fascinating details, we only managed half of the Hokusai show in London. Exhaustion set in, so we were surprised and delighted to have an opportunity to continue. It has all the famous prints, 36 views of Fuji, inc the Great Wave. Half the show is Hiroshige, who was less well-known to us. Not as funny as Hokusai, but equally fascinating. We managed to see the pre-historic collection, some of which was really well presented and explained, including the Palaeolithic and the Etruscan, but some wasn't explained at all. Never got to the Roman stuff.

Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna

Reviewed By Tiggy20 - London, United Kingdom

This wonderful gallery of 13-18th century Italian art was one of the absolute highlights of our visit to Bologna. A whole room is dedicated to Giotto, which we enjoyed mostly by ourselves, as was the case with the Raphael paintings. There is also a stunning room dedicated to the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci's contemporary Guido Reni, where one can see paintings spanning his career, the only painting not by Reni being a portrait of him. Closed on Mondays, for most of the year this Pinacoteca, in the university district, is open throughout the day, unlike most of the city's churches. There is no café, so if - as we did - you want to stay several hours it is best to visit a nearby café beforehand. Well worth the entry charge, credit cards are not accepted, so be prepared for that. There are lockers in the basement (1 euro returnable). In writing this review I am already wishing I could return in the next few months to this haven of wonderful paintings, well captioned in Italian and English (for some exhibits) with virtually no other tourists.

Museo Ducati

Reviewed By 63cuthbertk - Marloes, United Kingdom

The girl that showed us around the laboratory and explained the internals of the engines was really good and made it very interesting. It was great to see their latest racing bike there. The museum itself had lots of gorgeous motorbikes and it was fascinating to learn that Ducati originally made radios and projectors until their factory burned down and they changed tack. Shame not to see the factory but can well understand that they need to protect their workers from the virus.

Museo di Palazzo Poggi

Against the extraordinary backdrop of the 16th-century wall paintings that decorate the building, the Museo di Palazzo Poggi reconstructs the paths of research and education that gave Bologna its sterling scientific reputation in the modern age: the Ulisse Aldrovandi Museum, the Ferdinando Cospi Collection, the collections amassed by Luigi Ferdinando Marsili, and the furnishings and instruments that belonged to the 18th-century Istituto delle Scienze.Based on 18th-century documentation and the scientific production of those who played a leading role during an extraordinary period in Italian culture, the museum brings a substantial part of Bologna’s scientific collections back to its 18th-century venue. It recreates the setting and system of relationships that made these collections an important part of the “scientific mentality” of the era, transforming them into essential documents that now allow us to interpret the modern scientific culture.

Unsurprisingly, the oldest university in Europe has a fine collection of historical items in a historic building. Particularly interesting to medical, nautical or cartography enthusiasts. You also get something of the university area around. The library and old operating theatre are also remarkable.
