Modena

Vicki was running low on aceto balsamico, and I was running low on Ferraris, so we decided to head on to Modena. We found ample public parking close in to town, by the bus station, and walked the rest of the way to the centro storico, a few hundred meters.
An old San Giovanni church, dated 1190














Above the Farmacia San Marco (his attribute is the lion)














Street scene, on a major piazza


















Painted arcades


















Love the gentle curve


















Ditto


















Before Old Navy, Original Marines














Central piazza


















Orator's stone, a Medieval soapbox of sorts














Modenans killed resisting Mussolini














Contemporary building art; oh, Vicki got some 30 year-old
aceto balsamico; the Ferrari will have to wait until the lira drops
dramatically

We have some balsamic from Modena. I hope it is less expensive there than it is here!
