 Via Barbadori

Via Barbadori is a lane two steps away from the Old Bridge. It was born after World War II, in an area where all buildings had been destroyed by german mines and was named after the Barbadori, a family of prominent merchants whose ancestor was known for his golden beard («barba d'oro»). The Barbadori family owned a tower in the nearby Borgo San Jacopo, which stands still today.
In Via Barbadori one can find several artisan workshops and have a beautiful sight on the Belfredelli tower (12th century), one of the tallest in the city.
