We want to give our guests the opportunity to discover Bologna in a completely different way than tourists usually do. We want them to visit Bologna like a local would, so they can learn more about our food, how it’s made and also about Italian habits.
Delicious Bologna has been founded by Mattia in 2014.
His passion for food, the interest in meeting other people and cultures and the lack of food tours in Bologna are the main reasons that pushed him to start up Delicious Bologna.
The city of Bologna has been changing in last years due to the increase of tourism but Delicious Bologna philosophy didn’t alter and the main goal is still taking people to some local places and show them the authenticity of Bologna.
I was born in Imola, a small town in the province of Bologna, 29 years ago. After some experiences abroad in France and Australia I decided to go back in my hometown ( I was missing Nonna's food) and start to do something that I love, in the best city of the world: Bologna !
As I am a local and a big foodie I can easily transmit my passion for food and for my land to my guests, my job is like a hobby for me!
A native from Bologna, I lived in London, Berlin and Milan and only recently came back to find out that I actually love this place. A professional journalist, I write for a living but this is just for fun. Looking at my hometown with a part-insider, part-outsider perspective, I flatter myself to think that I can see and appreciate things with a special angle.
If it's true that the place where we are born says so much about us, then Bologna and generally my region Emilia Romagna represent my best business card. I love good food, good company, and traditions, but at the same time, I consider myself a curious globetrotter.
This last aspect has led me to explore different cultures, languages, and countries. Of every place, I keep unique memories; this is because I have been fortunate enough to share my experiences with locals, and I acknowledge how this aspect can make a visit unique.
