The Photo Challenge #47 – Tour Guide

I was born and raised in Bologna, Italy, and I’m crazy in love with my hometown.
Why? Because Bologna is beautiful under any weather circumstance, the red of the bricks manages to brighten up even the worst foggy day. Because it has that Medieval touch I love so much. Because its many covered walkways protect you both from the rain in winter and the hellish heat in the summer. Because when it comes to food we are not prone to counting calories and we’re definitely not afraid of body fat. And, believe me, there are at least another hundred reasons.

It’s kind of impossible to accurately describe Bologna to people who were not born here. And I’m referring not only to people born in other countries, but also to people who were born somewhere else in Italy. Bologna is a way of life, something that runs in your veins, something you can never betray.

Two of the pictures are my mother’s. She kindly gifted them to me. Just check her IG account to take a full Bologna tour.

    Sorbole…! Per me Bologna é stata quasi sempre “città di passaggio” per via delle coincidenze ferroviarie, ma ricordo dei punti particolarmente suggestivi: Via Piella mi é rimasta nel cuore. Mi riprometto di visitarla a fondo prima o poi.

    Concordo, ho studiato a Bologna per la triennale e mi è rimasta nel cuore, anzi nelle vene. E non ho trovato città così intense nel mio girovagare. Io la definivo sempre una città a passo d’uomo.
