Modena is a little charming town in the middle of Italy. Known as the birthplace of Worlds famous Ferrari car.

We spent a few days in vicinity of Modena (during our recent trip to Italy), enjoyed a colorful facades of houses, narrow streets, a lot of prosciutto and of course great Italian coffee.

Back at the time - I was tired of photography and made just a few random shots here:
