Photographer's Note

A panoramic view of one of the main squares in Parma, Italy the Piazza Garibaldi. The large building with the clock tower is the Palazzo del Governatore ("Governor's Palace"), which dates from the 13th century. The image is a stitch of some five or six vertical images, apologies in advance for the evident distortion, but I still believe it is worth seeing.

The image is best viewed in the large format that is available on the TE beta site here: http://beta.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=1445998

Parma is a city in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna famous for its prosciutto, cheese, architecture and surrounding countryside. It is home to the University of Parma, one of the oldest universities in the world. Parma is divided into two parts by the little stream with the same name.

It has a long history, already being a built-up area in the Bronze Age.

For those who are interested in a full history of the city, here is a link to the article on Wikipedea from which this information was taken.
