Today is March 27, 2020. For about two weeks most of the world has been self-quarantining, trying to avoid the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). The New York Times says today that Bergamo, Italy is the heart of the coronavirus outbreak. The Times features a report and photo essay about the misery there.
I once spent a few hours in Bergamo, making a stop for lunch between the Veneto and Lake Como. It is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in Italy and deserves to be better known for its cathedral and its delightful old town. Here are some of the pictures I took in 2009.
May we all be past this horrible pandemic soon.
