The dinner, at 8:00 pm, will take place at the Ristorante Agriturismo Al Pazz, in Montebudello on the hills half the way between Bologna and Modena. A bus is orgainzed to go there. The meeting is in front of the Math. Dept. (Piazza San Donato 1) at 7:00 pm.
Visit to the Etruscan ruins and Museum in MarzabottoAs a further social event, after the end of the workshop, in Thursday 18 afternoon, we plan a visit to the archaeological site and museum of the Etruscan town of Misa (or Kainua, in original Etruscan language), in the nearby (30 Km) village of Marzabotto.
A researcher from the Department of History and Acheology of Bologna University will guide us through the visit of the museum, the Acropolis and Necropolis as well as walking along the remains that clearly show the old town structure.
To reach the place, we take the local train (5,80€ return ticket) on the old Ferrovia Porrettana, the first in the 19th century to connect Bologna and Firenze. The views during the trip, if weather permits, are bucolic.
We shall take the train at 14:04 from the Central Station, West tracks.
The entrance to the Museum costs 3€ per person. If enough people are interested, we can explore the possibility to get a cumulative train ticket (with a discount).
