Bologna artistic centre

In Bologna, tourists can admire many interesting buildings and beautiful artwork. Many important artists were born in or near Bologna.  Particularly important was the role of the Bolognese painters of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. We remember some names: Guido Reni, Domenichino, the brothers Agostino and Annibale Carracci and their cousin Ludovico, Francesco Albani, Guercino and many others. It is easy that people remain surprises.  Also the cultural institutions of the city often propose interesting art exhibitions and every year in Bologna the ARTEFIERA international fair of modern and contemporary art.
