I really enjoyed the visit to this palace. There are always exhibit going on, mostly free and it is an amazing building full of history and art. It is also impressive to think it is used as the municipal public library so all the citizens walk in there to get their books.
It is also possible to obtain special permission to do research on the old books stored here.
The visit of the anatomy theater was the most impressive, especially after I saw the poster showing the picture of the same room after a alley bomb hit it during WWII!! It is amazing how they have been able to put it back together.

Address: Piazza Galvani 1 Bologna
