It is hardly what you imagine when you think of Italy in the summer.

But the north of the country has been hit by abnormally abundant rain.

July in the north has seen a record 19 days of rain, out of 26.

The downpours have soaked Venice while in Milan an underpass was flooded and the deluge caused a huge hole to appear in the city centre.
