Μέγαν εύρατο εν τοις κινδύνοις, σε υπέρμαχον η οικουμένη, αθλοφόρε τα έθνη τροπούμενον. Ως ουν Λυαίου καθείλες την δύναμιν, εν τω σταδίω θαρρύνας τον Νέστορα, ούτως Άγιε, μεγαλομάρτυς Δημήτριε, Χριστόν τον Θεόν ικέτευε, δωρήσασθαι ημίν το μέγα έλεος(Απολυτίκιο Αγίου Δημητρίου)

Reporting from Bologna...with 'buon gusto'
Il weekend di San Petronio nella citta' del buon gusto. 'Sfoglia Bologna'. A play with words. Sfogliare means to browse, turn, flip, go through the pages. To discover what's unfolding in front of you. Bologna always has a story to tell. Trust me. In Greek the word 'sfogliata' (pastry) is the equivalent of 'sfoglia' or 'pasta sfoglia'. So folks, it is plain to see how creative the Bolognese people are when coining terms and coming up with marketing ideas to promote the city's events. This weekend, the S.Petronio events are on ...with buon gusto, that is, the good food plays a major part of the events. I have seen big screens at piazza Maggiore (where S.Petronio church is situated) with cooking demonstrations and have taken some pictures from the heart of the city that speak for themselves. Oh, last day of the events is 4 October. Buon apettito! (Yellrose reporting via mobile phone from Bologna, pictures can be used provided source is mentioned)
