One of the most beautiful love song I know says that "words are futile devices" and at Bar Senza Nome you'll probably find out how true is that sentence. Founded in 2012 by Sara and Alfonso, Bar Senza Nome in Bologna is the first and only bar in Italy owned and managed by deaf guys.
Once you've entered this cosy place you'll discover again how many different ways we have to communicate (and I don't mean Facebook, whatsapp etc.). To order in fact you can pick some small tickets with your choices and give them to the bartender, you can have your lips read or with the help of some photos on the walls you can try to use LIS, the Italian language of signs. No matter which method you'll choose: you'll always find a way to get your drink.
Located in Via Belvedere, just behind Mercato delle Erbe, in one of the new and most exciting streets of the town about food, Bar Senza Nome hosts photos and painting exhibitions, concerts, DJ sets, book presentations and yoga classes but it's always nice just to go there for a craft beer or Chianti wine of La Muraglia, a farm on the Sienese hills run by Convito family and some deaf people.
So if you're looking for a place where to spend a nice aperitivo with friends or just have a beer in the city centre, well should be one of my first choices.
