My love for hiking isn’t a secret – so it wasn’t purely by chance that I found myself hiking a part of the Alta Via Trail in Emilia Romagna. I knew that it was something I had to do during my week of exploring Emilia Romagna with Blogville, but I didn’t expect it would be on a day when the sun would decide to play hide-and-seek. “I’m sorry but the weather is like this,” said Riccardo, my guide, as he gestured to the low-hanging fog with a dejected look as we drove closer to our starting point in the Parco Regionale dell’Alto Appennino Modenese in Modena.

Given Italy’s love for food, perfection, and the two hand-in-hand, it’s no surprise that it’s home to the world’s only university dedicated to the study of the quintessential Italian dessert-Gelato. Located in Emilia Romagna, the food-loving heart of Italy, and with satellite campuses around the world, the Carpigiani Gelato University serves as ground zero for gelato makers and entrepreneurs who want to master their craft with the support of a comprehensive program, the latest techniques, and an international faculty.

I learnt from many conversations that on Sundays, Italian mothers can spend as long as four to five hours in the kitchen, preparing an elaborate multi-course meal for the whole family. Why? Because nothing says love like a heartwarming meal lovingly prepared by an Italian woman.

As I experienced at the Il Salotto di Penelope Cooking School in Bologna, there is nothing instant about preparing a simple dish of pasta; from the thorough kneading of the dough and patiently rolling it out until the texture is just right to stuffing it with ricotta and preparing a delicious sauce. At their cooking school in Bologna, friends Barbara Zaccagni and Valeria Hensemberger teach eager food enthusiasts about the fine art of making pasta while peppering the lesson with stories and dispelling common myths about Italian cuisine.

It’s only my second day in Bologna, and I’ve already heard, more than once, that music is an important part of the cultural identity of the city. In its most accessible form, it’s everywhere on the streets of Bologna; in the captivating sound of the violinist on Via Ugo Bassi, her curly locks swaying to the mellow music, in the passionate love song of the singer on Piazza Maggiore who has a huge audience on a bright Sunday afternoon, and in the easy jazz that floats from the porticoes around Piazza Maggiore into my apartment, through the open glass windows overlooking the grand façade of the Basilica di San Petronio.
