Bologna, Italy

There is an Italian place, situated in the north part of Italy, full of history, old buildings and nice cathedrals.

This place is called Bologna. It has special charm, very “Bologna style” unique architecture. All buildings are with red roofs and this color is used in all parts of the city.

The red city – I love it! Just like my favorite color and like the color of its specialty – BOLOGNese .

In the past Bologna was called “The small Venice”, because of the canals it’s had. Now this part is under the new part. Unfortunately is closed and can’t be seen. Can you imagine – they are two parallel cities on two levels!

The city is amazing. The energy from Roma empire is saved and everyone can feel it, while walking on the street. It smells on croissants and pasta…mmm. The wines and cheeses are fantastic. You are in the mood “I-wanna-just-stay-here-and-taste-different-types”. All the variety of wines gives you an impression of different Italy’s parts.

My friend Martina, who invited me to visit her ( I am so grateful! She is one of the best personalities I have ever chance to known), explained me about the new trends in motorbikes in Italy.

Another amazing thing is the view of the bikes everywhere. The Bikers are fast, like the cars and the walking people. It’s very dynamic.

First impression of Italian people – they are enthusiastic to explain you everything in details with legs, fingers, face, arms, shoulders and other useful body’s parts. They are full of energy and passion, which is very charming.

The city is with 10 gates which are around it. The city structure is smart and safe – it’s a circle closed by the 10 gates.

The streets go in a circle, too. And this can be very confusing if you don’t live there. Jazz music, Piazzas are on every corner.

One part of Bologna has special energy – the university’s part where all the students are. In Italy there is a tradition if a student graduates and has to prepare the dissertation, one week earlier the student has been challenging by all friends to do a lot of crazy funny things, on the street – like singing, dancing, taking out of cloths and so on. So in the university part of Bologna there is outdoor party every day, just participants change.

20071023 - ROMA - ECO - ANTITRUST: ISTRUTTORIA SU AUMENTI PREZZI PASTA -  Un'immagine di archivio mostra vari tipi di pasta.  L'Antitrust ha aperto un'istruttoria per possibili violazioni della concorrenza per gli aumenti dei prezzi della pasta. L'istruttoria dell'Antitrust, si legge nel comunicato, riguarda ''possibili intese restrittive della concorrenza nei confronti di Unione industriale pastai italiani e di Unione nazionale della piccola e media industria alimentare''. Le associazioni, infatti, ''potrebbero aver dato indicazioni per aumenti dei prezzi omogenei sul territorio nazionale''.    L'istruttoria dovra' verificare se le indicazioni di aumento del prezzo da applicare alla pasta, a partire da settembre, fornite dalle due associazioni, abbiano ristretto la concorrenza.

Love the art presence everywhere. Even my friend’s flat is cozy and arty. Gives me an inspiration to implement some changes in my life. On the streets young people have done some nice pictures to express their feelings, public attitude or to support some causes.

While I have been walking on the streets, one young Italian was playing on a guitar amazing accords, the time of the day was around 6 pm, so the sun gave magnificent colors to the sky. I was with a really nice company, on the street was full of people. This whole picture gave me the feeling of the PERFECT MOMENT. It’s just 10 seconds, but you know, you’ll never forget it.
