Italy, day ten: 17/0617
Bologna at night. What an amazing place. Liz and I went out for a meal and then sauntered back through the city. I’m not sure whether I’ve seen anywhere so alive with people out enjoying themselves.
On a rare decent British summer night I’ve seen crowds of people out having fun, but this seems more like a feature.
We saw people at tables in crowded lanes enjoying great food, a talented group of break dancers, and a crowd of hundreds seated in a square listening to a film director being interviewed as part of the city’s film week. Finally, we came across some kind of rally, with a speaker addressing a huge crowd from the two towers. I don’t know who he was, but the crowd was immense.
I’ve never seen a place as alive as this for years.
Today’s pictures taken on my phone are of people out enjoying food and drink with friends and the crowds at the rally.
