Bologna are based in Emilia-Romagna, and they are rivals with almost every club in that region. Their fiercest rivals are Parma, with which they share Derby dell’Emilia. This rivalry is historic, since these two clubs come from the two biggest cities in the region, and they are also fighting for the title of the most successful club in Emilia-Romagna. So far, Bologna won nine major trophies, while Parma has eight. Apart from Parma, Bologna is also rival with SPAL, Fiorentina and Samprodia out of Serie A clubs, while the matches against Cesena and Modena are also tense.
Bologna is the most successful club in Emilia-Romagna. They were founded in 1909 and they were a founding member of Serie A in 1929. The club won Italian championship title seven times, which makes them the sixth most successful team in the history of the league. They also participated in 72 out of 87 Serie A seasons, which puts them on the ninth place in the ranking of clubs with the highest number of appearances in the top tier of Italian football.
However, the golden age of Bologna ended a long time ago. They won the last Serie A title in 1962/63 season, while the last Italian Cup came in 1973/74 season. Until the 1981/82 season, Bologna spent every year in Serie A, but since that first relegation they spent 15 out of the next 38 seasons in lower tiers, including three seasons in Serie C. In the 21st century, the best Bologna finish in the league was 7th place, in 2000/01 Serie A. In the previous season, their top-ten finish was the first since 2011/12.
