On the steps of San Petronio

Sitting on the steps in front of San Petronio on a beautiful, sunny day.  On the right, you can see the marble finishing of the church, but what you can't tell is that it only goes up halfway. This church was built by the people of Bologna and has a very rich history. Unfortunately, the community ran out of money at the time, and the church remains unfinished to this day.

  1. Nice photo. Question: If the church is still unfinished, do they hold half-masses?

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.
