Photographer's Note

The Archiginnasio Palace, one of the buildings of the University of Bologna, almost all surfaces of walls and ceilings are completely covered with coats of arms representing kings, barons, dukes, lords and other nobles of Europe, as well as professors and students of the university. There are about 7000 of them.
Among the students there were many famous scholars, poets and musicians:
Francesco Petrarca, Erasmus of Rotterdam, Albrecht Dürer, Nicolaus Copernicus, Paracelsus, Marcello Malpighi, Luigi Galvani, Giovanni Cassini, Umberto Eco and many, many others.

In my photo you can see the staircase to the Anatomical Theatre (old anatomy hall).
