The international illustration competition “BO it!” aims to enhance the city of Bologna through an artistic and creative interpretation of the icons that identify it, such as monuments and other symbols: Bologna described by those who live there, those who imagine it, who discovers it as a tourist and by those who arrive as a migrant.
Redesigning the image of a rapidly changing, increasingly international, multi-ethnic and culturally rich city, is the goal of this competition. Through a creative work, we aim to reflect and express this change, to give a contemporary interpretation, starting from new looks over the city.
Thanks to Chiara Boschiero for the idea of the competition, to Renata Giannelli for the conception and realization of the competition logo, to Simona Boldini for the idea of the name BO it! and thanks to Neva Frau, president of That’s a Mole! Association for the inspiration.
