Bologna under the snow

It's a strange winter this year. A hot one. No snow, some rainy days and fog, a lot of fog, of course. But this is not a blog about weather forecasting so with this photo report I'd like to remember what happened a couple of years ago, February 2012, when Bologna was completely white.
In two days the city was covered by a white blanket for the joy of children and photographers.

​My friend Andrea Forni is one of them and here you can enjoy the result of his reportage.
