Via delle Volte
Medieval road that once connected the local warehouses with the workshops
This charming medieval street marks the axis along which the so-called linear Ferrara developed between the 7th and 9th centuries A.D. and which greatly influenced the further development of the entire city.
In Via delle Volte the architectural solution to development in a third dimension was to create overhead passageways: the vaults dotted along the street, to connect the warehouses on the banks of the river to the workshops-houses towards the centre. To enjoy the atmosphere of its 14th and 15th-century buildings and the alleys that lead off it, a good stretch of the street should be covered.
