  • As the name implies, the stone was used in the middle ages as a "podium" public communications (pre-internet!) and also to expose the bodies of the dead of unknown identity. This information can be found from a sign posted near the stone. Nice idea!

  • the stone of Harangues a symbol of the city's history of that story to all of the great and the last because it is on that stone that have disclosed notices banned people but also a place for exposures of drowned waiting for acknowledgement ... and recently they sat the girls and boys who would meet in the square. Doesn't always happen to be found in medieval squares this kind of testimony. prey ringadora belongs to the Unesco site of Modena

  • Let me start by saying that I believe the prey Ringadora should not be considered an attraction in its own right, but a peculiarity of Piazza Grande, where it is now located. The prey consists of an enormous Boulder rectangular (3 x 2 m approx) pink marble, which suggests an origin in Verona, perhaps when in the 12th century the Cathedral of Modena was partially refitted in Gothic style. Popular tradition has it that the name of Pedra Ringadora derives from the fact that several speakers there climbed above for haranguing the people. Actually such use there is, however, no concrete historical feedback, while instead gave yourself that stone were chained to debtors, which were so exposed to public ridicule. La Pedra Ringadora was also called the stone of disgrace.
