Andrew, Bologna, Italy

This is a view of Piazza Maggiore, the central square of Bologna, the city which I have called home for the last twenty years. I came to Bologna on a short study visit after finishing university and was struck by the beauty of this town, particularly by this square, and vowed to come back again. A few years later with the help of an EU grant I did and this time I stayed. Many other Europeans, thanks to similar grants do the same, in Bologna and other cities in Europe. I am British but Bologna, Italy is my home and to me that appears perfectly natural. I guess that many others living outside their country of birth would agree. It is so sad that to those who voted for Brexit clearly do not.
