In 1950 he decided to give up his teaching profession and devote himself to acting.[1] After enrolling an acting course under Isabella Riva he made his stage debut with the Fantasio Piccoli's company.[1] Even if mostly cast in character roles, Bologna was one of the most active actors in Italian cinema in 1970s and 1980s, usually in comedic roles.[1]

Active as a voice actor, in 1970 Bologna founded in Milan the dubbing company "CDM" (Cooperativa Doppiatori Milanesi).[2]
