A space for the trades

The creation of the Sottoripa is due to the council decision to build it in order to protect the roadstead near the bridge Calvi. The sea lapped the foundations, hence the name Sottoripa, which means raised under the bank. These spaces immediatly became suitable for trades with shops and spaces, event the narrowest, in which dockers stored goods for the resale.

This engraving recreates the Sottoripa profile with the bridge Calvi on the left and the bridge Spinola on the right.
