Constant suspension clattering?

My name is Helena Simpson and I am the proud owner of a 51 plate Alfa Romeo 147 3 Dr Twin spark. The car is running really well but every time I run over any kind of bump in the road there is a loud banging noise from some where. I think it might be the suspension?
Does anyone know what it might be?
Thank you for any assistance.

My 51 147 has done it for 3 years, you get used to it!
I even asked the mot guy to have a look at the rear suspension, he said it was fine.
'They all do that sir'
If it is really bad/loud, best get a specialist to have a look, it could be all manner of things.
