last pix of Bologna

(click to enlarge) countless arcades
 brickwork detail on a cloister wall
a rather full hardware store
Raphael's Saint Cecelia with her instruments and fellow saints - and Mary Magdelane - with angels reading music above
gorgeous Madonna with baby and sparrow by Il Guercino, 1615
medieval vistas everywhere
the Fountain of Neptune by Giambologna - end of the 16th Century - and ramparts
And now for something completely different: Morandi - landscape
an "hommage" by a British artist called Tony Cragg, 1999
Why do these paintings make my heart ache?
On the way home, passed this grocery store - selling, it seems, oranges, bananas, and wine.
