Antica Galleria

An half buried gallery connects the inner yard of Palazzo Vecchio to via Trento Trieste. It has always been public and it is one of the few still existing pieces of the older defensive system of the city.Even if the gallery is located into an ecclesistical area (it is the southern part of the wide undergrounds under a former Gesuite monastery), it has always been public. This detail, together with the evidences emerged during restoration works (clearly defensive structures) has lead the scholars to the hypothesis that the gallery could be one of the few still existing pieces of the ancient stronghold of the town, the older defensive system in Bagnacavallo (about 1300).
