Synthetic History
1342 - 1352 probable construction as it belongs to the third high circle of walls
between 1676 and 1813 - demolition


Description
It was a secondary access to the medieval village, open in the direction that led towards Rapolano, on the east side of the city walls which, due to the geographical and orographic position of the place, did not require imposing fortification works.

This door is not present in any of the historical cartographies found, nor are there any reference images. Its existence is confirmed by its existence thanks to Gherardini's report drawn up in 1676.
