    Bologna has three nicknames: "la dotta" (the learned one), due to its ancient university tradition, "la grassa" (the fat one), due to its opulent food tradition, and "la rossa" (the red one), thanks to the red bricks of the town centre-now also associated with the traditional colour of the Ferrari, conceived in the area.
