This symbol of Modena has a long and colourful history dating back to the middle ages. Used as a stand for town cryers it was also the spot where debtors and fraudsters were pilloried. Enjoy an afternoon aperativo at the cafe behind it.

This stone exists because it was just too big to haul away. Guesses about the original use were as an oratory platform, public funeral spot, and more. Stop to read the sign, as you walk by.

This is a very interesting big pink stone. In the middle ages this was the pulpit to announce important issues. If you don't know the story behind, it is just a big stone.
