... with bags in their hands!
Went to the Piazza Maggiore after breakfast. It is the historic centre of town with the obligatory church/cathedral (Basilica del Santo Petronio). We visited the City library first. It is a very cool library, very modern but with a beautiful old ceiling. Couldn't do much reading as it is all in Italian.
It was the Church after that. The most interesting thing in the church other than the ...
... to Santa Maria dell Vitae, another city centre church (there are many in case you hadn't noticed by now) with some great art. The highlight of this church though is a sculpture set in red terracotta, showing the three Marys lamenting over the body of the Christ. They are all so clearly devastated that, as well as being life size, the figures are truly life like. The whole set has been accurately described as "a petrified scream". Simply wonderful.
