Life in Bologna has turned back to full normality after the recent earthquake in the region. There was no material damage in Bologna, though ALCE and other institutions altered their programmes slightly for a while to reassure nervous students.
Now all ALCE activities and the activities of the entire city of Bologna are back to normal. Here are a couple of reviews published by independent travellers and bloggers.
1) an article from Jeanette Kramer, also a Canadian educational consultant, who was a “student for one day” at ALCE: http://latitudetravel.ca/italian-in-bologna/
2) a wonderful “picture” of the city shot by another blogger visiting Bologna http://artofbackpacking.com/first-impressions-of-bologna-italy/
