As much as I love the gorgeous old buildings and courtyards of Bologna, I also find great delight in the little unimportant details that make this city so interesting.
Like the community bulletin board plastered with all sorts of notices for concerts and films and classes.
Some of my favorite such sights are the painted murals on the garage-type doors that protect the shops of Bologna after hours and during afternoon siesta.
They are supposed to represent what is sold inside. Some of them are easy to decipher, but others??
Methinks this might be a Bolognese watering hole.
Perhaps a bakery? Shelves lined with warm loaves of fresh white bread?
And this one? Umm, no idea whatsoever. 🙂
After wandering under the cool porticoes of Bologna in late afternoon, my friend Maddalena and I headed out into the hot September sunshine. It didn’t take long before we were both craving gelato. Maddalena took me to one of her favorite spots and I got a scoop of the very darkest of dark chocolate. Delish.
What’s your favorite thing to eat on a hot sunny day?
