Bologna by Drone


Bologna (Italy) from above - Drone 4K


Check out this stunning DVOW nominated video from Bologna, Italy, compliments of Jackanda.  Featuring stunning aerial footage of the city and its surrounding hills, the video was taken during the Covid-19 pandemic, when social distancing measures left the streets of the ancient Emilia-Romagna capital city virtually empty.  The ER region, which covers much of north-central Italy, was particularly hard-hit during the pandemic; only the Piedmont and Lombardy regions recorded more infections and deaths.

Check out this drone's eye view of a well-known church overlooking the city of Bologna, Italy.  Shot by contributor and pilot enricoocif, the video beautifully captures the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca.  The church sits atop a hill called Monte della Guardia, about 300 meters (around 1k ft.) above the capital city of the Emilia-Romagna region of north-central Italy.  The church was built in the early 18th century on the hill, which had been the site of an earlier church for hundreds of years.

AirVuz contributor Marco Miele brings us this excellent Christmastime drone video from one of the great landmarks of northern Italy: the Asinelli Tower in the city of Bologna.  It's the taller of the Two Towers, a pair of medieval era structures which are the most recognized in this historic city.  Built in the early 12th century, the Asinelli Tower stands nearly 100 meters tall - around 325 ft. The video also features some nice footage of the second of the Two Towers: Garisenda Tower, which is about half as tall.

Misty Northern Italy: Bologna and Ferrara


The famed misty hills of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region are on full display here in the magnificent drone video by contributor Rikk08.  The video was shot in two spots: Bologna and Ferrara.  The former is the regional capital, lying in the province of the same name.  It's Italy's seventh largest city, and was one of the largest cities in Europe during the Middle Ages.  Ferrara is the capital of the eponymously named province, which lies in the northeast part of the region, on a branch of the Po River.  

The Abbey of Monteveglio

Check out this drone video of a well known monastery near the city of Bologna in northern Italy, compliments of contributor enricocif.  It's called the Abbey of Monteveglio (Abbazia di Monteveglio Sanctuario), and it's located in the town of Valsamoggia just to the west of the great university city.  The current structure dates to the 11th and 12th centuries, although the original monastery was likely considerably older.  Originally built for the Augustinian order, it now houses Franciscan monks.

Drone video footage and computer generated "historical" footage of the great city of Bologna are skillfully combined to make this impressive visual collage.  Bologna is Italy's seventh most populous city as of 2018 and the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region in the north central part of the country.  It was founded by the Etruscans, a civilization which pre-dated the Roman Republic.  Among other honors, the city is home to the oldest university in the world - Bologna University, founded at the end of the 11th century.
