The Bolognese School or the School of Bologna of painting flourished in Bologna, the capital of Emilia Romagna, between the 16th and 17th centuries in Italy, and rivalled Florence and Rome as the center of painting. Its most important representatives include the Carracci family, including Ludovico and his two cousins, the brothers Agostino and Annibale. Later it included other prominent Baroque painters: Domenichino and Lanfranco, active mostly in Rome as would be Guercino and Guido Reni. Accademia degli Incamminati in Bologna run by Lodovico Carracci.
