Visit Palazzo Re Enzo

Located in Piazza Maggiore, Palazzo Re Enzo has been playing a key role in the city’s political life since the 13th century: once through its gates, a veritable journey back in time shall begin. An audio guide, authored by an expert in art history, will take you through the rooms that make up this fine example of medieval architecture, while a series of city images, kindly provided by the Fondazione Cineteca, will transport you back in time to the past century, capturing the most significant moments of ordinary life in Piazza Maggiore. Just close your eyes and relive nine centuries of history in a heartbeat.
We would like to thank the Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna for the courtesy of the images from the large "Bologna Fotografata" archive.

If you wish, you can also continue your journey in the fifteenth-century Palazzo Ghisilardi, home of the Museo Civico Medievale, whose fascinating exhibits are evidence of one of the most splendid periods of the city.

Breathe in the music in one of the city's most exclusive historic settings.
Palazzo Re Enzo is exceptionally reopening its golden gates to host the piano, violin and cello concerts by the Orchestra Senzaspine.
Three special weekends to usher in the New Year and enjoy an exciting musical experience within a unique setting. Your ticket to the shows will also include admission to Palazzo Re Enzo to be visited on the same days as the concerts. FIND OUT MORE HERE.
