Michael Phillips

A native of Belfast, Ireland, moved to Bologna in 2005 after many years traveling around Europe. Curious to a fault, an interest grew in what lay behind all the closed doors in this ancient city only to find hidden art treasures and incredible sights that many of its own inhabitants knew and still know little about.
For this reason, recordings of these spectacular scenes were published them online through the medium of video and photography. After a few years of developing and tweaking this new found interest a pocket guide called 'Naked Bologna', was born. Its main intention was to reveal the richness of Bolognese history through videos that would in future be accessed from smart phones.
Consequently, this diligent work came to the attention of the local press in the Corriere di Bologna which in turn, led to the 'Naked Bologna' pocket guide being nominated for a civic prize in March 2012: 'Il Premio Bologna Città Civile e Bella'.
Teaching English though still pays the bills but, with the intention that forever discovering Bologna will eventually become a 'full-time' job.
Lastly, but by no means least, the grand project is actually about convincing those sitting on the tracks at Bologna Centrale, that this city really is worth abandoning the comforts of their high-speed train to go exploring, even if only for a few hours.
