Born as an appendix of Palazzo del Podestà, it gained its name from King Enzo di Sardegna, welcomed here by the state from 1249 until his death (14 March 1272). Since then, this impressive gothic building in front of Piazza Del Nettuno has been know as Palazzo Re Enzo. It has been often used to host exhibitions, fairs and, lately, concerts. A history that keeps on repeating year after year: roBOt continues to bring sounds into rooms that have been prisons and, once again, become dancefloors.

Before MAMbo, this was the place to visit. Inaugurated in 1975 next to Bologna Fiere, the austerely rationalist architecture to enclose 2,700 square meters that have hosted – temporary exhibitions as in the endless collezione premanente – some of the greatest works of modern and contemporary art. Bologna’s EX-GAM returns to live for the tenth edition of the ROBOT Festival. Discs and instruments mounted on walls of crates instead of paintings and sculptures: with different shapes, the spirit continues.

This is where the closing party of RBTX will take place: the quadrature of the circle, the complete path. Since 1994 Link has written indelible pages in the history of the most radical avant-gardes, across the board, with electronic music only a part of the boundless total. A complex place, with an incredible charm, as anyone who has crossed it knows well, able to inspire every artist to make that fundamental leap forward to create a concert, a djset, an unforgettable installation.
