Hi all!
I want to share some photos of my beatiful town, Padua!:)
Know as the "city of Sant'Antonio", the city is picturesque, with a dense network of arcaded streets opening into large communal piazze, and many bridges crossing the various branches of the Bacchiglione, which once surrounded the ancient walls like a moat.

It counts today about 210,000 inhabitants, with a rising immigrants population
(overall from Romania, Moldova, Morocco, Ukraine, Nigeria, China and Albania). The University has about 60,000 alumni, and it is among the largest of Italy; it was named as the best one since four consecutive years (then since 2003).

The city of Padua has become the first in Italy to allow gay couples to have their partnerships legally recognized
, prompting swift criticism from the Vatican's official newspaper.
