Basilica di Santa Maria della Steccata

Buona sera! I am a little all electric Piaggio Porter! My cousin is a Daihatsu Hijet, we look a lot alike but I was born in Pontedera, Italy and my cousins are all born in Japan. Anyway, I am of service to the municipality of Parma! Unfortunately that does not mean I help producing Parma ham or Parmesan cheese because I work for the technical services department. What that means I don’t know, I just drive around town to wherever my boss needs to be! Right now I am parked right next to the Basilica di Santa Maria della Steccata which is a sacred church designed in the shape of a Greek cross. It was built between 1521 and 1539! Parma is a beautiful city that was built ages ago and it is great to see that we electric vehicles drive around to keep the city beautiful and up and running. We don’t want any fuel! You might have noticed that there is someone on a bike behind me, well if you come to Parma you’ll see a lot of people cycling! You might expect Lycra and other sporty wear but sorry to say, they don’t do any of that here for cycling. You’ll see people in suits, dresses and other things that might keep them cool on a bike! You should come and have a look! Ciao!
