The museum and flagship store of Automobili Lamborghini is featured in the new Wallpaper* City Guide: Bologna (Phaidon Press, EUR 8.95), one in a series of pocket-sized insider guides for the design-conscious traveller. The Wallpaper* City Guide: Bologna describes the Northern Italian city close to Lamborghini's home town as a fascinating mix of great tradition and vibrant modernism.
The Wallpaper* City Guide: Bologna is bound in black, which happens to be a classic Lamborghini colour, -- more than any other, of course, the Lamborghini brand represents uncompromising design and extreme sportiness. The City Guide features the ultimate places to enjoy art and architecture and to sleep, eat, drink, shop, exercise and relax in the city.
The guide takes the reader through Bologna and praises it as a 'city with its heart in the south' with a 'laid-back lifestyle' and a vibrant economy. The guide highlights must-see aspects of one of Europe’s most fascinating cities, from historical and modern architecture such as Piazza Maggiore, new 'design-led hotels' including Art Hotel Corona D'Oro, and 'cutting-edge cultural venues' such as MAMBo. In the 'Sports and Spas' section of the guide, there is a recommendation to visit Automobili Lamborghini in neighbouring Sant'Agata Bolognese.
WALLPAPER* CITY GUIDES are compiled by the travel experts at Wallpaper*, the international design, fashion and lifestyle magazine, and published by Phaidon Press, the world's leading publisher of books on the visual arts (www.phaidon.com).
