Lucca:Walking through the streets

This post is also available in: Italian

Lucca:Walking through the streets you can see the via della Stufa

This beautiful if it were not fear real that in this area of the city of Lucca

stoves had been placed

Lucca:Walking through the streets of Lucca I think but will it be a legend?

The stoves were powered by a blazing fire and produced steam wheen heating

water for those who wanted to take a hot bath and relax

The problem came when this service caught on so much that so many

people went to both men and women and the location became a real one


Thus, the area was banned and the rooms where there were hot baths were closed

because it was considered filthy and scandalous that men and women lent themselves

to take baths hot completely naked.
