Abstract

The Mathematical Tourist Ma. Louise Antonette N. De Las Pen˜as, Editor ologna was founded by the Etruscans, who called it Felsina. It was named Bononia by the ancient Bonaventura B Romans, perhaps because of the presence in its territory of the Boii Celts. Although it is a city full of history Cavalieri and Bologna and art, it is less frequented by tourists than other Italian cities like Venice, Florence, or the eternal Rome. Few of those tourists know, however, that it was one of the first DIEGO L. GONZALEZ ,LORIS RABITI, AND cities in the world to have legislation for the protection of JULYAN H. E. CARTWRIGHT cultural assets [1, 2]. This makes Bologna a kind of open-air museum; walking through its streets, one may come across works of art or archaeological finds that in other cities are found only within museums. Does your hometown have any mathematical tourist Bologna is famous as the seat of the oldest university; the University of Bologna was founded in 1088.
