Porticoes Past and Present

The portico is a social collector, acting as a thread connecting several activities, such as visiting and discovering the city, meeting people or taking a coffee break. It represents the ideal route for shopping, because it protects people from any weather variation. This section exploits the storytelling method in order to learn again how to talk about ourselves. But it could also represent the opportunity to find the very anthropological component that has sealed, since many centuries, a solid agreement between the inhabitants of the Bologna city – residents, students living away from home, foreigners or tourists just passing by - and its porticoes.
