Via Pietro D’Abano – The legend of the well

0
In the past, the city's water supply was ensured by a series of wells located in the streets and squares of the city. This is the case of what was once called Via Pozzo Pietro d'Abano, which today bears only the name of the famous astrologer, mathematician and doctor. A story circulated about this extravagant and mysterious personage, which concerned the well he shared in a courtyard with another house. It is said that because of this well, his servant and his neighbours' servant argued constantly, until the doctor-philosopher, who according to popular opinion was also a sorcerer, became angry and ordered the demons with his magic spells to move the well outside, into the street, so as to put an end to the arguments.
