Google isn't helping much, so I'll go with Bergamo.
Bergamo was a nice place to visit. Had a really great meal up in the Citta Alta. But this pic was taken in a different town a few days later.

There's a strong clue in the pic that will pinpoint where it is.

It beats me why someone would put a love lock on a bridge to say that they love... the city. Clueless vandalism.

Parma's connection with violets isn't exactly obscure. For example...


I'd agree that a wheel of cheese would've been an easier clue.

Not near Italy, though you're likely to find many descendants of Italian immigrants there. Not volcanic-related either.

São Paulo is both the name of a state and of a city in the state (like NY, NY). The state is correct. The city isn't.

There have been a few and forecasts for many more through that whole region. This one looks like Catanduva.

Franca, Brazil
All photo credits mention Franca, though indeed these events reminiscent of the Great Depression Dust Bowl have been taking place thought central and southern Brazil. Quite unprecedented, and likely linked to deforestation and unsound agroindustrial practices, producing ever growing amounts of cane sugar and alcohol, and the soybeans that feed livestock

@dirkomatic got this one

Googling "park with bells in columns" suggests this is the Carillion, in Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, Nashville, Tennessee. Who knew?

I didn't either. They resembled something vaguely fascistic. It appears the 95 bells represent each of the state's counties, as well as its musical legacy.

I'll come up with something, soon.

To be fair, this is not brutalist architecture and it would be incorrect to call it fascist, though the style known as Stripped Classicism was a favorite of the Nazis, Fascist Italy and was also used by many democratic governments for public building.

Of course I did not know any of this before reading about it just now.

This one has got to be taken from the hills behind Berkeley, CA.

I recently posted a picture of a bridge just like one of those.

Yes, San Fransisco from Berkeley, CA. From a trip to Cal in 2018.

Around the time, one of my former students was applying for a government job that required Q clearance, so the FBI wanted to interview me. I told them that I would be out of town and visiting Berkeley. They replied "We're the FBI. We can meet you wherever." I ended up talking to the FBI agent on the roof of the astronomy department. It felt very X Files.

@Andres Falconer you're up again.
