I have not gotten back out on the street since we returned from our travels. There is a lot going on over the coming weekend to fill my memory cards but for now we remain in Italy. Bologna has a unique feature in the old city center, block after block after block of sidewalks covered with porticos. Some are arched, some are flat but, besides the beautiful sight lines, they offer protection for rain and sun when out about your business. No enclosed shopping malls needed.
