Snow in Italy

Italy's mountains always get plenty of snow, but this winter has seen some exceptionally cold weather, with snowstorms extending even to the southerly and less mountainous parts of the country.

See some striking Photos of Alberobello under snow. Some schools have been closed and ferry services suspended in southern Italy and Sicily: Snow in Taormina (article in Italian). But the cold isn't all bad - organisers up in Turin are hoping for the right kind of weather for the Winter Olympics.
