-- Not until the Tower of
London, the Bastille and Alcatraz Island played their parts in history has a piece of
penal architecture been so romanticized. For all its outward beauty, this span is
simply that which connects the Prigioni Vecchie (old prison) to the Prigioni Nuove (new
prison), the latter of 16th-century vintage.
