Streets, Parishes, Notes:

"Quarter: S. Giovanni, Parish: S. Lorenzo, Streets: V. S. Gallo {p}, V. del Maglio (V. Lamarmora {p}). Square 1 had few households, no shops, few patricians, some households with servants, some households w/o surnames and some households headed by widows. The house near the gate (B135) was probably the customs house. The outer reaches of V. del Maglio for the few houses and high walls were favorite spots for ball playing."
