Bologna, the capital of the northern Italian region of Emilia Romagna, is a city of many marvels. It is known by many nicknames that reveal much about the city's culture and history.
One of them, "La Dotta", translates into "the scholarly", relating to the city's age-old university. By most sources considered to be the oldest university in the world, it was founded in 1088, and to this day, it is one of the most prestigious universities in Italy. Well known for its progressive and liberal inhabitants, the city saw both the first woman ever to earn a university degree and the first female professor in history. Amid this academic and liberal atmosphere, a scavenger hunt in Bologna is the perfect approach to explore the city, learning about its rich culture and history playfully.
"La Grassa" – the fat one, refers to Bologna's reputation of being Italy's gastronomic capital. The famous Bolognese sauce, locally known as "Ragù alla bolognese" made of slow-cooked meat, tomatoes, onions, carrots, and celery originated here. Also, the stuffed pasta "Tortellini" was born in Bologna and is handmade by locals in small pasta shops called "sfogline".

"La Rossa" – the red one, is another nickname of Bologna. It stems from the glowing red brick used in many of the city's medieval buildings and Bologna´s history of being an Italian Communist focal point. The red architecture, as opposed to the political viewpoints, can still be marveled at today.
