and how
The Loiano Observatory is 37 km from Bologna, on National Road n. 65 (S.S. Futa), about 2 Km after Loiano, a mountain village in the North Apennine ridge, about 800 m a.s.l. By car, S.S. Futa can be reached directly from exit n.12 of Bologna's "Tangenziale", going towards Firenze; or, by a longer route, leaving Motorway n.1 (Autosole), direction Firenze, at the Rioveggio exit.
