i'm Ilaria and i fell in love with Bologna 9 years ago when i came here for the university. I'm sociable, friendly and curious. I like to talk with people, discover their culture, history and learn from them. I like art, music, literature and photography. Usually, it's really easy be confortable with me. I would like to transmit my love for this city to anyone, talk about Bologna and its citizens, its food, music and history. Bologna has always been a generous, welcoming and full of history city, i will try to make you feel like home bringing you in the most typical places and show you how wonderful and magical can be this city.

Recently I graduated in BA Classics at the Univesity of Bologna (UniBo); right now I'm looking for a part-time job to earning some money for a beatiful trip on this summer. I've always been in love with the ancient stuff, so I'm really interested in history and in the evolution of civilization and culture in general. I also adore architecture and any kind of Art (from the primitive art to the street art). Other passions are food, specially traditional and ethnic food, adventure travels and soccer (I'm a Bologna FC 1909 fan). As I said before, I've lived in Bologna since I was born, so I know it very well. For example the point of force of my city is the small size of the old town, where all the historical beauties are. It's very simple to visit and, in the meanwhile, you can easily see a lot of structures from the Middle Ages, pieces of italian art and enjoy the superlative food! Talking about food, I know a lot of little "pearls" hidden restaurant, that will leave you with the memory of a fantastic holiday.
