Small Portico (Portichetto)

A corner of the town that warrants a visit is the small portico of Via Fabrini under which there is the public weigh station, the oven and the slaughterhouse. In a large marble slab the official measures recognized in the small state are engraved. At the top of the slab there is an austere bust of a bearded old man who in the local dialect was called “Lu Giustu” (the right). It is perhaps the bust of Pope Clement IX Rospigliosi or that of a Roman philosopher or dignitary.
