Bergamo (Lombardy)

Bergamo is a city in Lombardy, about 40 km northeast of Milan and 30 km from the lakes Como and Iseo. The foothills of the Bergamo Alps begin immediately north of the town. The town has two centres: "Città alta" (upper city), a hilltop medieval town, surrounded by 16th-century cyclopic defensive walls, and the "Città bassa" (lower city). The upper city, surrounded by Venetian walls built in the 16th century, forms the historic centre of Bergamo. The lower city is the modern centre of Bergamo. At the end of the 19th century Città Bassa was composed of residential neighborhoods built along the main roads that linked Bergamo to the other cities of Lombardy.

What others are saying about Lombardy

@Mark D asks:

Spese condominiale - we signed a contract to rent an apartment in March this year. The rent is a fixed amount per month plus a contribution of 200 EUR per month for le spese condominiale.

@Mark D asks:

SPID - I think I'll need one of these in order to register my business, and also for some other things.

I've requested one from Aruba.it. At the final step I need to download a PDF, digitally sign it, and upload it. There are two problems with this.

@Mark D asks:

Power cuts: We live in Bergamo. We're currently experiencing the fifth power cut in five days.

Each lasts from one to four hours. There would seem to be a failing component in need of replacement.

This affects all three blocks of apartments in this piazzetta.
