Bologna060

Part of the San Petronio Basilica heliometer.
The meridian line sundial inscribed on the floor at the San Petronio Basilica in Bologna, Emilia Romagna, northern Italy. An image of the Sun produced by a pinhole gnomon in the churches vaults 66.8 meters (219 ft) away fills this 168×64 cm oval at noon on the winter solstice.
