  • Leonardo has designed this system to allow boats to pass important differences. Structure that has about 500 years and I very much hope they reopened the Navigli in Milan bringing to light and run these pieces of history.

  • Ingenious contrivance invented by Leonardo to allow boats to pass the height difference between the naviglio della Martesana and the inner circle, for access to which you had to pay a fee (= gabelle). Its construction dates back over five centuries ago, ended on 13 October 1496 under the Duchy of Lodovico il Moro, as commemorated by a plaque. Of time it's been really a lot and since then, as they say, "a lot of water has passed under the bridge." We hope therefore that pretty soon you come again to slide under that of Gabelle as along the many canals of the city.

  • Beautiful canal left that was ancient passage of ships that served to carry items and large rolls of paper to the Corriere della Sera. Should be a little more enhanced and promoted. Two steps away from the prestigious via San Marco, Milan Brera.

  • Simply artistic and romantic history. Pity miss you water from the Martesana which by Melchiorre Gioia led to "Tomboun de Saint Marc" now Piazza San Marco where they make the market and there is a gas station. There was the port of Milan leading from Lecco on fruit and other vegetable products and Strain from the North East of the province of Milan and Lecco.

  • There are places in Milan where you can still imagine a city of the past, with the slow flow of its waters. This place is the bridge of the gabelles in via San Marco, from where you can admire the Valley of the Incoronata, the only stretch of the Martesana Canal remained in the Centre of Milan. 
It is precisely here that in ancient times, the boats were coming in Milan were to pay duty said gabelle, for passengers and freight, hence the name "bridge Gabelle".
