Snow levels in some cities: 50 cm in Udine and Vicenza; 60 cm in Biella; 80 cm in Bologna; 90 cm in Milan; 110 cm in Varese; 122 cm in Como; 130-150 cm in Trento (which while being surrounded by mountains, is just 194 meters above sea level, so pretty impressive anyway).
Milan’s [San Siro Palasport](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palasport_di_San_Siro), one of the largest indoor arenas in the world, became an illustrious victim of this event when its roof, designed to withstand 60 cm of snow, collapsed under the weight of 800 tons of snow.
