Fontana del Pincio, Montagnola Park, Bologna, Italy
Montagnola: nymph and horse in battle against the octopus, Bologna, June 2013
With a few hours to kill in Bologna, this was an accidental discovery while walking along Via Dell’ Iindependenza from the Bologna Centrale (Central Train Station) to Piazza Magiore. This is a small park with beautiful steps and a fountain that was right by the side of the road, with modern buses and cars plying by. Quite fascinating actually and very picturesque. Only later did I found out the names and that it is more than a century old.
Updated the previous version of the picture, not happy viewing on a different monitor , needed a bit more contrast. was more grey than B&W
