Palazzina della Viola

The Palazzina della Viola was built at the end of the 15th Century for Giovanni II Bentivoglio, the last of the noble Bentivoglio family to govern Bologna. It was built to be a place of beauty, and its interiors were decorated with some wonderful frescoes during the 16th Century. The front with its double open gallery is particularly attractive. Today the Palazzina della Viola houses the Faculty of Agriculture.
