CHIAVICOTTO CLOSE TO ACQUALAGNA AND CAGLI - Cagli
DESCRIPTION

Several chiavicotti are along the stretch of the Flaminia beside the Apennines in the correspondence of small streams, ditches and creeks; the smallest are covered by slabs of stone resting on two parallel walls which run on the entire length of the roadway, such as in Tavernelle and at the gates of Cagli.

In the stretch of the consular road between Cagli and Acqualagna, at least three bridges are attested, one of which is still saved about half-way, with a vaulted ceiling, built in local stone.

It has been built in opus quadratum, without mortar, in correspondence of a ditch, and has been recently restored. The building technique used is matched in many other similar structures along the Flaminia and is part of the same project of the Augustan period for the reorganization of the old street with demanding construction works, from the biggest bridges with several arches to the simplest chiavicotti.
