The weather’s finally eased off – it’s cloudy today in Bologna, and not yet absurdly hot.
Ironically, we’re strapping Roomie into the car after lunch and heading for the coast, where she’ll be able to romp in the sand and the waves, charming or savaging the other beachgoers, according to her mood.
The best laid plans, etc. The hot weather is due to return when we do, on Friday!
Still, it’ll be nice to get out of the city. At this time of the year, everything starts feeling like rather hard work. We need a break…
Intanto, episode 8 in our Summer Series on The Renaissance is ready for you.
Episodes 1-7, along with the complete Summer Series from 2020 (The Romans) and 2021 (The Middle ages) – sixty episodes in total, are linked to from our History page.

So a private detective is surprised when he receives a phone call from the son of one of the city’s great families. Will he agree to investigate the theft of a famous painting?
