"Alma Mater Studiorum Saecularia Nona. This book has been adopted by the University of Bologna for its Ninth Centenary."
In frontespizio: "How to use "A Key To Bologna". You can read this book from cover to cover, but it may be more useful to consult what interests you directly. If you are visiting Bologna for only a few days, you may wish to look up its sightseeing itineraries (page 49) and food section (page 35). If, on the other hand, you plan to stay in Bologna for some length of time, you may wish to consult any other section, such as those on apartment residences (page 34) or on sports facilities (page 170).
The summary will show you where to find what you are interested in. There are twelwe chapters in this guide and each of these is divided into sections where addresses, phone numbers, timetables and sundry information are clearly indicated.
The last chapter ("If you like...") contains essential information on the city that did not fall under a specific guide-type heading, and gives advice and recommendations for readers who intend to visit Emilia Romagna, the region of which Bologna is capital."
