While walking through the Piazza Maggiore during the day we noticed that an open air cinema had been laid out in the square. We returned that evening to a magical sight; the Open-air cinema in Piazza Maggiore
The event is arranged for free and is a yearly summer event in Bologna.
The atmosphere is culturally charged and entertaining.
A beautiful setting to have this event.

Nice square. Didn’t see the square as normally, because of a film festival, which was so amazing. Old restored movies was shown, and it gathered the whole city.

This is the place to start! The statue of Neptune, partly fenced off for repairs (june 2018), the cathedral, the two palaces and streets that radiate to Chiesa Della Santa and many other attractions within 3 or 4 blocks.
It is a gathering place at night. There was an outdoor movie festival on until early July 2018.
There are two palazzos on the square but the major one is under revnovation and covered by sheeting.
The Palazzo Arcuri is the seat of municipal affairs and has a few rooms on the second floor worth a short look and a museM with some Credi and Veronese paintings.

Architecturally pleasing piazza. Neptunes fountain is a joy. The basilica.Buzzing with people sitting by the fountain eating gelato.What a good idea!
