Bologna is known in Italy as "La Dotta, La Rossa, La Grassa", which translates as "the educated, the red, the fat". "Educated" is for the citys university, the oldest in Europe and home to such intellectual greats as the novelist Umberto Eco. "Red" refers both to the red bricks that most of Bolognas historic buildings and porticoes are made from, and to the citys history of leftist politics. And "fat", of course, is for Bolognas culinary history, one based on creamy pasta sauces and rich meat dishes.
