NEXT Village San Francisco is a neighborhood nonprofit organization providing services and support that empower members to live independently in their own homes as they age. One type of event they sponsor are presentations on travel. Our Bologna Connect AmbassadorMary Tolaro-Noyes’ husband, Tom Noyes, presented Italy: The Places In Between, on Thursday, February 19th at the North Beach Public Library, in San Francisco, CA. He discussed four cities culminating with Bologna. One of the most popular parts of the presentation was the history and development of the city’s porticos and revelation that it was once a city of canals.
