About this spot
What many visitors to Bologna may not know is that at one time Bologna was known as “Little Venice.” In the 12th century, canals were built on the city’s major rivers with a network of hydraulic locks and pipes. The waterways were used for manufacturing silk and for the tobacco and flour trade.

Very few of the canals remain today—many were covered with roads and buildings, especially after WWII. However, north of Piazza Maggiore you can find a window to catch a glimpse of the past.
