About this spot
The Bolognese built a second circle of walls inside the city during the 12th century. The “Circle of the Thousand” had 18 gates called menageries. Today, four of them still exist—Torresotto di Strada Castiglione, Torresotto di San Vitale, Torresotto di Porta Nuova and the Torresotto di Porta Govese.

The new city walls made it possible to include villages that were outside the first circle into the urban space. The Torresotto di Strada Castiglione connected the city with the hamlet of Barbiano.

During WWII, the gate was damaged several times by aerial bombing. As the gate was rebuilt, it lost its bridge holes (or scaffolding holes).
