Reno Canal

Past the bridge of the respiratory Malcontenti, Piella and Guglielmo Oberdan, the channel of the Rhine sharp turn to the left inn an internal light well, formerly included in the carmelite convent of San Martino. From this point the canal was called the Moline for the mills for grain distributed along its course, which continues through the streets Alessandrini and Capo of Lucca.

The channels since the XII in Bologna were used for food production and for navigation beyond the city walls. The economy of Bologna experienced a flourishing development over the centuries thanks to the many industries that used the hydraulic force of the general channels. The channel of Moline, who hails from Chiusa di Casalecchio fed mills, spinning silk, sawmills and hammers.

This is what is written on the sign of this channel. :) I hope I have translated well.

My uncles live there, and when I went to visit them this July, they showed me that channel! Did you know that Bologna won a war with Venice? A NAVAL war! hahahaha Amazing, isn't it? 
Great photo!

I do not remember why there is this channel. At one time the area where there is now Bologna, but also other cities of the Po Valley, was a marshy land, and with the passing of the years has been drained. I think this channel is what is left of the marshy land. Next to the canal, where you made the picture, if I remember correctly, there was a sign that explained something about this channel. Bologna is full of amazing places and streets. I myself have not seen even half of the city. In addition to this, Bologna is known throughout Italy, and even outside, to have the oldest University and the facilities are now being used, available to students and also for tourists.

I'm envious of the people who owns that balcony.

Is very cute, but those balconies are very old. I would not trust just because I'm afraid that can break. I 'll tell you because I always pass by that way when I have to go to college.

im so stupid...i thought for about 2 seconds that this was your interpretation of a city on top of a piece of bologna T_T

Because I was eating it.

For those 2 seconds I was like staring at my bologna sandwich feeling kinda bad.

Oh hey, this city was mentioned in the latest "Heroes of Olympus" book.  A couple of mischievous, thieving dwarves that had apparently once pranked Hercules lived there.

"Heroes of Olympus" is the sequel series to "Percy Jackson and the Olympians," in case you don't know.  It's based on Greek and Roman mythology and focuses on a bunch of modern-day demigods going to camp, fighting monsters, and trying to save the world from ancient evil deities rising up to destroy Western Civilization.

I see you go a lot around Italy :D I've been living in Bologna for 3 years now... gave me some nightmares, especially at night when the sky - which is SUPPOSED to be blue/black - is red instead. I'm glad you managed to shoot this with a beautiful light in, I guess, a beautiful day! 
About the secrets... did you manage to find the others? I reckon you paid a visit to Piazza Maggiore... I hope you got chance to reach the intersection that transmits the sound from one corner to the other, it's way too cool!

By the way, love the colours, your pictures are always so inspiring :hug: thanks for sharing!
