The Accademia Filarmonica di Bologna (Philharmonic Academy of Bologna) is a music education institution in Bolognamarker, Italymarker.

It was established in 1666. Saint Anthony of Padua was chosen as its patron saint and the image of an organ bearing the motto Unitate melos was chosen as its coat of arms. The main idea of the institution was to gather professional musicians "to form a long lasting unity dedicated to making beautiful music".

The history of the Academy in the second half of the 18th century is marked by the admission of the great singer Carlo Farinelli (1730) and of the famous composer and teacher Father Giovanni Battista Martini (1758), together with foreign composers as the Belgianmarker André Ernest Modeste Grétry and the Bohemian Josef Mysliveček, the Ukrainianmarker/Russianmarker Maksym Berezovsky, and also young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart obtained the academic certificates.

In the 19th and 20th centuries the institution was interlaced with such names as Gioacchino Rossini, Giuseppe Verdi, Arrigo Boito, Richard Wagner, Jules Massenet, Camille Saint-Saëns, Giacomo Puccini, and also with John Field, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Anton Rubinstein, Ferruccio Busoni and Ottorino Respighi.

At the beginning of 21st century the Accademia was headed by M. Fulvio Angius.
