The names are intriguing. This is where the ideas for the Princess in the Tower stories originated -- all those towers in various countries, poor Rapunzel.
Bologna, a city in Northern Italy, is also the home of the first University, founded in 1088. And from what I read, is the true "Foodie Capital" of Italy with not only four-star restaurants but less expensive cafes serving delicious regional food.
Bologna is also famous for its Bolognese Ragu, a hearty meat sauce which is served with Tagliatelle not spaghetti as it is here in the States.
Severino Trematore, the artist of this poster, published in 1928, has an interesting and sad history. His work in the 20's was mainly travel posters and brochures for Italian cities and ocean-liner advertisements. But, while in London in 1940, he was arrested with other foreign nationals and deported. His ship was sunk by a German torpedo.
I have added a You Tube link, travel photos of Bologna.
