Photographer's Note

The most striking design feature of Bologna is its arched passageways, which traverse the city and provide 23 miles of elegant community walkways. The beauty of these arches is that they were designed not just to look handsome, but to fill an important social function: the covered archways allow the locals to casually stroll and mix with others without fussing with umbrellas, or sunshades on a rainy day.
