A square outside the walls

Just below Sarzano, a widening between the alleys with a walled front is the current transformation of a strange plateau, previously overhanging the sea, under the walls of Barbarossa (now incorporated in the houses). The sea at that point met with the mouth of the Rio Torbido (which still flows under the tunnels of via Madre di Dio). The urbanization of the downstream area began four centuries ago, filling the mouth of the Rio, and today it has immersed one of the squares, called Campo Pisano, so that it is no longer perceived as a border place.

The image (from Google Maps) shows Campo Pisano and the layout of the walls, squeezed between the buildings that today close its view towards the sea.
