Lizzie – Bologna relics

March 17, 2009

relicsWe did occasionally find time away from the festival. A chance to walk up to the main square and an extraordinary church. Experienced a very theatrical moment there. I was peering  in the dying light through the gloom at a chapel full of relics when it suddenly lit up with a thousand lights, like something out of a fairground. I almost expected appropriate music to play out. Unbeknownst to me Rachel had spotted a slot for a 20 cent coin and, voila (or the Italian equivalent), a magical moment.

Heavens above!

Heavens above!
