Via dell'Indipendenza, Bologna: 8 reviews and 24 photos
Central Bologna's main thoroughfare, Via dell'Indipendenza was created in 1888 to link the railway station, Bologna Centrale, with Piazza Maggiore. Sadly, many older buildings were razed in the process, but it gave architects of the time an opportunity to erect larger and more modern buildings along the wide avenue. Fortunately, the character of the city was preserved, for the entire avenue is lined with arcades, in keeping with the bolognese practice. In addition, traditional bolognese architecture was revived in numerous buildings, which have made abundant use of Gothic-Renaissance style motifs, red bricks and terracotta. See the attached photos for examples.
