This is a part of the "portici" that run along the liston, the large marble paved part of Piazza Bra. I don't know a translation for the word portici (if anyone can help...). I think it was the cold and wet northern climate that generated the architechtural feature of the portici: a simple way keep dry in case of rain. Verona has really a few portici, compared to other northern towns, in fact I can think of only a couple more, certainly shorter than this.
