Bologna – ITALY
GENUS BONONIAE is a private company promoted by the Carisbo Bank Foundation. It was born in 2003 to develop the project “Genus Bononiae”, a museum system presenting the history, the arts, the music, and the cultural life of Bologna. The whole project includes eight buildings situated in the centre of Bologna, now renovated and restored to the public use. MCBO is the heart of the project, characterized by a strong use of multimedia and interactive devices to promote broader accessibility to cultural heritage and offer. “Genus Bononiae” intends to preserve the huge cultural and artistic patrimony of both MCBO and the Foundation, including paintings, sculptures, photographs and musical instruments; it also promotes and increases it through public cultural events and exhibitions. Special attention is given to the dialogue between the city and Italian, European and international citizens and cultural institutions, Bologna being a city at the cross-road of many EU and world migratory flows.
