The beautiful Villa dell Rose sits on Monte Franco and is surrounded by a lovely Italian garden and an English garden where many rare and exotic plants are grown. The park as a whole is absolutely enchanting and is definitely a place to visit during one of the hot Bolognese afternoons. The villa was built for the Cella family and then passed into the hands of the Armandi Avogli counts. In 1916, Nerina, the widow of Count Avogli left the property to the city of Bologna who opened the Galleria d'Arte Moderna there. In 1975 the Gallery was moved to its current location in Piazza Costituzione and the Villa delle Rose was kept as a location for temporary exhibitions. Today it hosts exhibitions of contemporary art.
