The Caro amico ti invito (Dear friend I invite you) contest, run from 18 April to 5 May 2013, was created with the objective of verifying, through the stories and images of the city provided bycitizens themselves, what and how much of the distinctive features of the city emerged from the research were mostly shared.

In the contest, people living in Bologna, addressing an imaginary invitation to a friend in another city, explained through images and words the reason why Bologna deserves a visit.
It was possible to share one’s story on the social platforms tumblr, facebook and twitter with the hashtag #caroamicotiinvito, or writing a postcard.

The contributions received, about forty posts, stories, sentences, photos and tweets, collected on the blog, became an integral part of the research.

The authors of the 5 most significant contributions -Andrea, Oriana, Alessia, Elisa e Livia - selected by a jury coordinated by Urban Center Bologna, won the prize of a weekend as a “tourist at home” thanks to the contribution of Bologna Welcome. The winners spent the two days taking on the role of tourists discovering the beauties present in the territory: from a trip on the hill with a traditional Bolognese lunch, to a guided tour in the historic area, an evening devoted to the cinema, and a cooking course to learn to prepare “sfogline.”
