Giancarlo’s cousin, Guglielmo, invited us over to Sunday pranzo here in Bologna. We were treated to amazing salami from the south, good Italian home cooking (gnocchi with home made tomato sauce!!!) and some award winning Montalcino red wine. It was still warm enough to eat outside, and while he cooked I enviously eyed his Ikea showroom apartment.
Mmmmmm,mmmm,mmmmm - The smiles of satisfied bellies.
And as we've been learning on our daily walks in the city, Bologna loves random gatherings. On our way home from lunch at Guglielmo's, we stumbled upon one such gathering that turned out to be a dance party in the Piazza. I couldn’t tell you what it was for, other than it was put on by a local radio station, and the Bologneses were out with their dancing shoes on… especially this guy!
