Medieval Keep

Built in the mid-fourteenth century, in ancient times defined as "corridore", this is a fortified walkway, on two levels, which linked the walls in the vicinity of the Florentine gate with the interior of the Emperor's Castle through the rear gate. It formed a safe and quiet path through which the Florentine troops could enter and exit the city without being seen by the people of Prato. Between the nineteenth and twentieth century a large section of the Keep was demolished to make space to Viale Piave.
The restoration, finished in the year 2000, allowed to recover two sections of the old structure, restoring a pedestrian walkway that starts from via Pomeria and ends along viale Piave, not far from the Castle. This space hosts frequently temporary art exhibitions.
