Italian reader Michele Brucalassi sent links to great videos.

More than 10 feet (3 m) of snow! That’s 128 inches (327 cm) of snow!
Not surprisingly, that sets a new record for Urbino.

Most snow in 128 years

According to the Meteorological Observatory “Alessandro Serpieri” of Urbino, which began collecting data in 1884, was never recorded a similar level. That of February 2012 is therefore the most exceptional snowfall of the last 128 years.
