Let’s go to Piazza Maggiore, below the Palazzo del Podestà. There is a Vault called “Voltone del Podestà”, under the Arengo tower, famous not only because of its beauty but also because of its extraordinary architecture. The ancient masters were able to create a “wireless phone“, which allows you to communicate from one corner to another of the vault. The explanation for this phenomenon? This channel with a so short distance of communication had been concocted in medieval times to confess lepers.
