Not your typical image of beauty..

 I found this beauty the other day while wandering. It's only the second or third nice Italian car I've seen so far here in Bologna..the other was a Lamborghini. =D   Anyway, it's not your typical image of stunning Italian scenery but it is nevertheless a part of Italian history and culture.
And it's so beautiful, no?  (I'm a sucker for well-crafted cars..)

Porta Saragozza

Porta of the twelve gateways built into the ancient wall that was constructed around the city during the Middle Ages. This porta was reconstructed in the mid-1800s and is the start of the world's longest portico which leads up to the Sanctuary of San Luca.
