Bologna is known as 'La dotta, la rossa e la grassa'. La Dotta (the learned) is a reference to Bologna University, Europe`s oldest. La Rossa (the red) means terracotta tiled roofs of the city and its historic leftwing politics. And La Grassa (the fat) is obviously about delicious food. Bologna is a culinary pilgrimage that is no wonder for the place where lasagne alla Bolognese originates.
