  • In recent days, after visiting the beautiful medieval town of Gubbio, Diocesan Museum famous for its folklore corsa dei Ceri, his friend Angelo Valentini, knowing my passion for wine, accompanied me on a narrow laneway to show me the great <Botte dei="" canonici="">. The barrel is located in the basement of the Cathedral. From existing documents in the Church archives, it appears that the canons of the Cathedral commissioned, in 1526, a large barrel of capacity corresponding to the current 194 hectolitres barrels, 387. The barrel is visible through a gate. The purpose of the article was to collect the wine from the collecting of landowners in the area and from the vineyards of church property. It represented the largest wine heritage of the place, which was intended to be distributed throughout the year, to the extent of a barrel a day, to the whole community of the poor of the city. The remaining 22 barrels were reserved for the celebration of masses. In the years following construction co, because of the scarce Fri demmie, filling the bot you became such a problem that Pope Paul III Farnese, with an edict motu proprio, or order the expropriation of the vines in order to obtain sufficient quantities of wine to fill the huge belly of the cask. That's why, in the territory of Gubbio, to describe those who are greedy and never sated, it is customary to award him the epithet "be worse than the barrel of the canons". In addition to phenomenon of great civilizations, the barrel is a feat of engineering and a work of high carpentry. Achieved without containment circles, is held together by a sophisticated system of beams, placed to contain it in position tangent to its circumference and resting on the walls and ceiling of the place in which it is located.
