IN THE PROVINCE
Together with local comuni, the Città Metropolitana (Metropolitan City) of Bologna – www.cittametropolitana.bo.it) also sponsors a number of music festivals, including Voci e Organi dell’Appennino (Voices and Organs of the Apennine Mountains), featuring music in ancient hamlets and churches; a blues festival in Porretta Terme; Concerti al Tramonto (Sunset Concerts) in Pianoro, San Lazzaro and Ozzano, held at area parks in coordination with agriturismi (holiday farms) that offer guided visits and food tasting prior to the concert; and Suoni dell’Altro Mondo (Sounds of Another World), ethnic music in San Giovanni in Persiceto.
Many comuni have local theaters. One that merits special mention is the ITC.
