A unique experience that will allow you to discover Palazzo d’Accursio, one of the landmarks of Bologna and symbols of power. Discover every corner of the imposing Clock Tower, the tower that guides the city in the beating of its time and the Municipal Art Collections, a unique place where the history of Bologna is treasured.
Entering from the courtyard and climbing the elegant "staircase of horses", up to the second floor, you will first enter the Accursio Tower (Torre Accursio), better known as the Clock Tower. Here, by using your smartphone, you will listen to the audio guide that will take you within the halls of the building, until you reach the beating heart of the tower: the mechanism that makes the clock work. You will hear anecdotes about how the building and the tower have spanned the centuries to the present day and you will have a unique opportunity for an unbeatable view of Piazza Maggiore.
You will also have access to the Municipal Art Collections, housed in the rooms that were once used as the residence of the Cardinal Legates. Also in this case, with the help of an audio guide, you will wander among paintings, art objects, furniture, porcelain and fabrics ranging from the Middle Ages to today, up to reaching the Urban Room (Sala Urbana), a masterpiece of the Bolognese Baroque with its heraldic decoration.
