The unmissable appointments for the week of August 15th in Bologna
New capital of national and international tourism, Bologna remains a city with the spotlights on even during the week of August 15th. In fact, there are numerous proposals and alternatives for those who will spend this holiday in the city.
For lovers of culture and art, two unmissable photographic exhibitions are underlined: the first reopened this summer right in the Piazza Re Enzo underpass after the success of the 2017 edition. “Bologna fotografata. Persone, luoghi, fotografi” tells our city through beautiful shots that accompany the visitor along the urban and cultural changes that marked it from the late nineteenth century to the early nineties.
The second, unmissable exhibition is at the MAST Foundation, which dedicates a spectacular journey to the work of the German photographer Andreas Gursky, considered one of the greatest artists of our time. “Andreas Gursky. Visual Space of Today” is an opportunity to admire, for the first time in Italy, the large format works of this undisputed talent capable of elevating photography to contemporary art.
Entertainment seems to be the watchword this week: on the evening of August 15th, in fact, at the Battiferro headquarters, the show “An evening with Giacomo Casanova” will be staged, starring Eugenio Maria Bortolini and the stars of BB Burlesque Ballet.
As per tradition, “Ferragosto alle Serre” also returns to the Giardini Margherita with the scratchy deejay set of Red Chocolate and the atmosphere of one of the symbolic places of the Bolognese summer. Lovers of shows will also find something for their teeth at the Arena Orfeonica in via Broccaindosso, where the musical “Mamma Mia!” on the famous hits of ABBA.
