Summer in Bologna

The weather's been unexpectedly mild. Mostly cool at night but warm and sometimes muggy during the day. But hey, who is complaining with all the wonderful things to do at night.

Just grab a nice gelato (from one of my favorite places) and head on to one of these events one evening.

There is the Slow Food market that takes place every Wednesday evening in Piazzetta Pasolini (Cinema Lumière), in via Azzo Gardino street in the Giardino Klemlen. You can buy your fruit, vegetables, organic bread and baked goods, cheeses, eggs... but you can also buy handcrafted beer, wine, enjoy cooked seafood and listen to music. Its a great way to spend some time with friends and enjoy the warm weather. For more info click here, please remember its on Wednesday evening (not on Monday).

Then there's the free evening movie in the main square: Piazza Maggiore shown in the original language with subtitles. For the complete schedule, check the Bologna Welcome site here.

There are numerous, mostly free, concerts that take place in town, for every age group and pocket. Check the Bologna Be' site.
