My husband and I are planning to move to Bologna within the next couple of years. We are working on a visa which requires us to have a rental agreement in place to qualify for the visa but we need the visa to get into the country. Any ideas as to how to solve this catch-22?
Ravenna (Emilia Romagna)
Ravenna is the capital city of the Province of Ravenna, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. Although an inland city, Ravenna is connected to the Adriatic Sea by the Candiano Canal. It is known for its well-preserved late Roman and Byzantine architecture, and has eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city annually hosts the Ravenna Festival, one of Italy's prominent classical music gatherings. Opera performances are held at the Teatro Alighieri while concerts take place at the Palazzo Mauro de André as well as in the ancient Basilica of San Vitale and Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe. Chicago Symphony Orchestra music director Riccardo Muti, a longtime resident of the city, regularly participates in the festival, which invites orchestras and other performers from around the world.
