Jazz Devotees


Bologna is traditionally tied to jazz by a special love: the very first jazz festival in Italy was based here from 1958 to 1975 and important jazz players at the time such as Chet Baker, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Keith Jarrett, Jerry Mulligan and Miles Davis, had a stop in the Emilian capital city

Since 2006 the Bologna Jazz Festival takes place each year in November with a rich program of concerts and events in theaters, pubs, clubs and restaurants.
