Bologna has an air of vitality that strikes you in the face from the first moment you walk in the city. Its long history and its world-renowned University have become an attraction for thousands of students each year, transforming it into a place full of hip shops, small art corners in every alley and awesome street art. It is considered one of the most modern and culturally evolving cities in Italy and not unjustly so. In this article I will show you some pieces from the unique street art I found in Bologna.

The University area

I was very lucky and without knowing it, the hostel I had booked to stay was in one of the busiest areas of the city, that of the University. So, the first day I hugged my camera and tripod, I walked on the streets and it only took me a few minutes of walking until I found myself in front of wonderful works of art.
