Bologna in the middle of summer…

A Bologna d’estate c’è una gran pace , c’è meno traffico ed il caldo probabilmente impone a chiunque di muoversi con più calma e serenità .

Si lavora meglio e una volta fuori dagli orari standard di lavoro c’è la possibilità di godersi le numerose attività collaterali che quest’estate non mancano davvero .

Per quello che riguarda i concerti e le manifestazioni, un gran bel lavoro secondo noi è stato fatto da “bè”, ovvero Bologna estate che ha raccolto e riordinato numerossime iniziative , valorizzando spesso angoli della città che gli stessi bolognesi non sempre frequentano .

Se siete degli sportivi e la vostra passione è la bicicletta , potete sfogarvi approfittando della pedonalizzazione ormai diventata  un classico durante il week end . I T-days , che anche se al centro di numerose polemiche, stanno trovando un loro equilibrio tra sostenibilità e logistica dei trasporti, e offrono sicuramente un centro  cittadittadino rilassato e sicuro per ogni tipo di ciclista, dal bambino che sta imparando o al cicloviaggiatore  professionista .

Se invece siete assetati di cultura o perchè no, cercate refrigerio nelle ampie sale di un museo, potete usufruire del percorso culturale artistico e museale articolato negli edifici del centro storico, organizzato da Genus bononiae oppure visitare la Mambo , il museo d’ arte moderna di Bologna .

L’estate con le sue miti temperature serali, permette inoltre ai numerosi ristoranti del centro storico di poter usufruire dei dehor all’ aperto e allora la grande tradizione enogastronomica bolognese  si mescola ai colori della città illuminata  . Per questa stagione , ma proseguirà fino al 30 di Novembre , è stata creata un iniziativa che vede anche fra i creatorie l’ ACCADEMIA DELLLA CUCINA ITALIANA chiamato Menù vera Bologna che permette di poter assaporare le specialità locali in numerosissime location e con menù adatti atutte le tasche .

Con questo post abbiamo solo cercato di presentare alcune delle numerose iniziative estive bolognesi di cui si può apprifittare durante la stagione estiva , sia che passiate per lavoro o che siate nel bel mezzo di una vacanza . Forse potreste trovare ispirazione e visitare angoli del nostro territorio che vi sorprenderanno durante questo periodo di “quiete”.
