Urban Center Bologna is the headquarters of the Fondazione per l’Innovazione Urbana (Urban Innovation Foundation).
At Urban Center Bologna you can learn about the main policy initiatives and projects that are transforming the city and the metropolitan area of Bologna.

Here citizens, and representatives of public institutions, associations and the economic and social worlds can meet and discuss urban and metropolitan area projects.

In the "sala Atelier" and "sala Esposizioni", you can view exhibitions, participate in meetings, lessons, workshops, seminars and laboratories, and also read and learn about the future of the city.

Urban Center Bologna is also many other things: contests, publishing products, participation processes, communication activities and collaborations.

Since 2018 the Urban Center Bologna Committee has become the Fondazione per l'innovazione Urbana (Foundation for Urban Innovation).
